Voice Notes – Short Film


A Tandem Ride with Horst A. Friedrichs

A beautiful documentary short film that charts the testimony of a sincere love connection with bike riding as well as the beginning of a friendship.
Montenegro & Lafont crafts through emails and voice notes a fascinating portrait of the photographer and bike lover Horst A. Friedrichs.


Horst A. Friedrichs.

is a renowned photographer that has offered his inspirational take-on very appealing projects, from British manufacturing brands, the Mod, rocker tribes, urban cyclists, to the coolest vintage car scenes. He has captured their spirit as well as their clothing, accessories, scene and most of all attitudes. Through stunning, rich and vibrant photographs he has drawn London’s different subcultures, which eventually have turned into great books.

Montenegro & Lafont sensed a special bond with one book in particular, Cycle Style. A stylish portfolio of men and women standing proudly by their steel framed bikes through the streets of London. After a one-time encounter he encouraged Horst to take part of this adventure, getting to know each other through out their work. But this time, the final result would be a short film. Horst agreed and that is where it all began. 



To celebrate the release of the film, we’ve issued a unique series of twenty (20) books signed by our main character. Cycle Style is a stylish portfolio of men and women standing proudly by their steel framed bikes through the streets of London.
