People That Pedal: Why We Ride

14 images Created 5 Sep 2022

Cycling brings people together, and does away with barriers. These portraits represent only a small sampling of our very diverse cycling community, but they showcase many of the unifying sentiments behind our love of riding.

This is an ongoing project, shot with older medium-format film cameras: a 40-year-old 6x6 format Bronica SQ-A, and a 30-year-old 6x4.5 format Mamiya 645 Pro. All on Ilford FP4 black and white film, and natural light.
