An Award-Winning Look at Bicycle Travel Through the Eyes of a Photographer
When I was in my early twenties, I set the goal of bicycling through all 50 of the United States. I accomplished this over a twelve-year period, traveling more than 15,000 miles in the United States, plus a bit of Mexico and Canada.Traveling without the protective bubble of a vehicle provides a wonderful opportunity to see, hear, feel, and smell the world around you.
Add to this the minimalist nature of bicycle travel. Having limited carrying space forces you to rely on as little photographic equipment as possible. On my bike, I only had room for one camera body and one lens. So, that's what I worked with.
Bike-tography presents a collection of photos from my bicycle travels and from 'round-town rides in my hometown, Tucson, Arizona.
Bike-tography has been awarded 2012 Silver ADDY Awards by the Tucson Advertising Federation and District 12 of the American Advertising Federation, and was a finalist in the National ADDY Competition.
