Cyclists is an exquisite collection of hundreds of candid photographs. This book is a selection of 150 men & women riding bicycles on Toronto’s streets in 2011 and 2012. These remarkable pictures are street style/fashion portraits. They are stolen public moments given back to us as art & history. This book is an inspirational visual document of Toronto’s cyclists’ movement, what is and should be. The dangerous and enlightened world of commuting with traffic & trucks. The work of photographer Lincoln Clarkes mirrors elements of our culture that are front and centre, and shows us a curious new vision. Clarkes has been honing in on and capturing perceived moments of passing elegance for decades. These fresh and beautiful portraits are a tribute to his cyclists’ subjects.
