This year, I took a passion project and brought it to life in a meaningful way. I ride my bike to get around… a lot! And I know a lot of other folks who have made the same choice in transportation. So starting in 2016 and running through 2017, I took up the camera and started shooting a portrait series aimed at capturing the lovely human beings who’ve chosen their bicycle as their primary form of transportation.

I’m out there, shooting photos, on a weekly basis, and will be sharing a new rider’s story every week. My hope is to swing the perspective from a roadside object to be eliminated to a dad headed to grab some groceries, a mom on her way to work, or maybe a brother and sister headed to class down at the U of M. Human beings just living their lives.
