We were on our way to do a feature on a pin up girl when we came across German photographer Nicole Mattinger of Bokehbar Fotografie out of Egelsbach, Germany. While we still plan on doing a feature on that pin up we mentioned, we thought we would take a little side trip over to last years Bottrop Kustom Kulture Weekender.
We love road trips, especially when the photographer can capture not only the details of the Kustoms but also create a mood that makes you feel like you really missed something special. This weekender held last year was the 1oth year for the event, which unfortunately due to poor field conditions in the two previous years due to rain, has left the organizer to move the event to The Zeche Ewald in Herten for 2013.
So our new photographer friend, Nicole Mattinger, not only caughtsome great moments, but also took some of the last photos of this Kustom Kulture show in Bottrop. Enjoy these kick ass photos while listening to the Stray Cats’ “There’s A Rumble In Brighton Tonight.”
