A photography exhibition featuring portraits of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome has opened in London.
Gareth Winter and Jonny Hines have joined forces in for an exhibition described as a ‘fusion of photography’, with both bringing their own style to the six-week event.
Portraits by Gareth Winter is said to “capture intimate moments of professional cyclists that portray the beauty and romance of cycling, inspired by the rich history of the sport and heroes of the past.”
Winter’s portraits, shot exclusively on 120mm film with a Yashica Mat medium format camera, include images of Wiggins and Froome, as well as other riders from Team Wiggins, Team Sky, Canyon/SRAM and more.
/klʌɪm/ by Jonny Hines follows two riders, Walter Beckers and Kendal Noctor, in their attempt to climb 60,000m in ten days by bike, taking on some of Europe’s toughest climbs. Hines’ work uses the harsh mountainous landscapes as a backdrop for scale and magnitude, while a series of intimate, candid shots reveal the riders’ struggles.
“This exhibition highlights the beautiful world we live in, and how small we really are,” says Hines. “I want my images to inspire people to get out on their bike, and plan an adventure on or off the bike.”
The exhibition is open until Monday January 16 at Robin Partington & Partners, 4th Floor Castlewood, 77-91 New Oxford St. London, WC1A 1DG.
