Vespa Club Uganda - photography by Ariel Tagar


I was made aware recently of this series of photographs taken by Israeli photographer, Ariel Tagar, when I was sent the link to the Guardian's feature in late February. I then contacted Ariel to ask permission to feature his photography on here..

The Guardian article written by Elinor Potts, tells how Tel-Aviv based Ariel travelled to the Ugandan city of Kampala and observed a couple of men riding around on old vespas. Upon speaking to them he realised they were part of a larger group who choose the vespa as their transport of choice. Without wanting to take away from Elinor's piece, you can read the full story here as well as viewing Ariel's photographs on his website here


I've seen old colour period 1950/60s photos taken in Kenya I think it was, in a Vespa history book I have but it still amazes me how far afield the Vespa scooter reaches, permeating every corner of the globe and the affection and regard it is still held in..

Thanks very much to Ariel Tagar for allowing me to feature his excellent work.
