A mythical species of horse that is extremely hard,if not impossible to catch. If you manage to capture the unicorn, you will obtain immortality. Don't cage in a unicorn when you keep it. It will run away.
The Silver Unicorns Project is a grassroots art series by artist Allison Cordner aimed at empowering & inspiring women to break boundaries by going against their fears and societal 'norms'. Allison wants to bring to light the full range of women who are pushing the limits by learning to ride motorcycles.
All the portraits taken are of women of many backgrounds, looks, sizes and motorcycles. Allison does not believe in rules or limits. The images themselves are made using a highly specialised historic photographic process of making images on glass or metal, called Ambrotypes (tintypes). The pieces are fragile, one-of-a-kind and hauntingly beautiful in their imperfections and Allison truly believes that the fragility, freedom, spontaneity and soulful aesthetic of this medium lends itself perfectly to the theme of women who ride motorcycles.
