watch your back!

do yourself a BIG favour and take some time to check out this AMAZE blog!
this is the creation of photographer bridget fleming. after moving to NY, this australian lady made her mark with a very imaginative project called "downtown from behind".
her images capture cyclists as they whizz through the city, the quirk being that you very rarely see their faces!... better yet she has plans for "downtown from behind" to take on sydney and melbourne!.... what out all you bikers!

Downtownfrombehind (DFB) is a photographic series capturing subjects riding their bike from behind on some 200+ streets, avenues and lanes below 14th street in New York City.
The result is an environmental portrait for each street and subject with a goal to highlight a set of individuals, emerging and established, each uniquely contributing; culturally, socially and physically, to make this part of the city what it is today.
The project has been widely covered in the press, from New York Times, Huffington Post, Coolhunting, Vogue, Nylon Magazine and many blogs (thankyou).
Subjects photographed to date include industrial designers, architects, creative directors, restauranteurs, entrepreneurs, hoteliers, artists and academics
