In this new series, I began photographing bicyclists while I ride in effort to capture life in the bike lane.
It first began as an inclination. While cycling to my destination, I wondered what other bicyclists felt about this experience. Is it exhilarating or does it cause anxiety? Perhaps my camera could help answer these questions.
Riding a bike in Toronto just wasn’t a form of transportation. But rather a tool to liberate myself from the constraints of the city. Inside a car, my eyes are fixated on tail lights, street lights and traffic. But on my bike, I feel more in control, engaged and free.
I title this photojournalism project the Rear View Wheel series. It began in Toronto and continues in Amsterdam. My aim is to provide a candid perspective of life in the bike lane.
