NYC By Bike – A Photo Project

View all 10 Photos

The city everyone loves has been photographed, filmed, sketched, and painted countless of times. But Tom Olesnevich pays homage to New York in a unique and creative way. Specialized in sports photography and passionate about cycling, he wanted to show how it feels and looks like to travel around this busy city on a bicycle.

The NYC By Bike project features a series of photographs that depict the metropolis from a different angle, providing a glimpse of the city and its inhabitants over the course of a few beautiful days during spring. To shoot the images, Olesnevich attached one of his DSLRs, a Nikon D40, to the underside of his bike using a GorillaPod tripod. With the help of an infrared remote, he could snap photographs while riding around Manhattan, across Central Park, or through the popular Times Square. The images capture much more than traffic. A group of policemen chat by a car, a woman glances towards the camera, iconic yellow taxis rush through Times Square, bridges intersect in a striking composition, trees with fresh green leaves contrast the blue sky. All of the photographs from the series capture not only the fascinating charm of the Big Apple, they also display the talent and ingenuity of the artist. Photography by Tom Olesnevich.
