Rupert Hartley Prints

2 Aug

Rupert Hartley is a London based editorial and commercial photographer. His works have featured in publications such as the Sunday Times and Vanity Fair. To celebrate the inclusion of the Col de Sarenne in the 100th edition of the Tour de France, Rupert has produced a series of four individual signed prints. Each prints will be run as a limited edition of 50.

Over the next 4 days, I will post an image of each print along with a snippet about the Sarenne itself. The prints are stunning and really capture the deserted feel of the pass.

bone-shaker issue #12

31 Jul

The new issue of bone-shaker has arrived. bone-shaker magazine offers a different perspective to the normal cycling magazine/reportage. There are no adverts, no articles about professional cycling and most certainly no “best bike under £XXX…”. The magazine has numerous contributors all detailing the wacky & wonderful things that may be done with bicycles.

Favourite articles in this issue include;

  • Lake-jumping – “Derek enjoys putting on his wetsuit and the feeling of a crash landing in a chilly lake” – need I say more?
  • Roads were not built for cars – a historical outlook on the importance of bicycles throughout the last couple of centuries.
  • Railbiking – another historical look at pedal-powered rail vehicles and concluding with modern-day designs.

This is just my selection of articles from bone-shaker #12. The articles are so numerous and diverse there is surely something for all tastes!!
