JAPANESE RIDE

On a chilly Sunday morning, 6 friends gather near Bastille ; they have a plan : ride, and the have 6 bikes – fixed gear or not who cares.
I arrived a bit early to the meating, had tea, and waited for the others participants to arrive : Hono, Wai, Chihiro, Hisashi, Yuji and Atsushi.
So 6 bikes, hot clothes, bags, and gloves. They step out one by one. I have 12 pictures left on my roll, and no digital camera. No mistakes allowed.
Moreover, it’s not about posing, it’s not a magazine photoshoot or something like that ; what you see, is the regular looks of true explorers that have basically met because they’re all residents of the city of lights : Paris.
The unexpected is that I showed up with my half broken Ricoh camera to immortalize the event. They were kind enough to let me capture the essential essence of what drives them in their everyday journeys.

Thank you
