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.
Capturing life in the bike lane in Toronto
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.
