McGregor & Boorman Long Way Down Motorcycle Journey Photo Collection to Bonhams

At what is being called the most anticipated motorcycle auction of the year – the Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction – Bonhams has announced that part of its motoring ephemera collection will include a large photographic exhibit of actors Ewan McGregor’s and Charley Boorman’s Long Way Down motorcycle journey.

The 32-piece, professionally matted and framed collection of pictures originally provided by Big Earth Productions, producers of Long Way Down and Long Way Round, captures scenes of the duo’s nearly three-month, 9,000 mile odyssey taken in 2007, most of which was through Africa.

Estimated at $5,000-$7,000 (£3,200-4,500), profits from the sale will go to UNICEF.
