Winter Laps in Brooklyn, New York
This is Prospect Park in the dead of winter in New York. I am a photographer by trade and bike racer by hobby and these two parts of my life are deeply intertwined. This image is familiar to any cyclist in New York who rides in the middle of winter hoping to achieve some marginal gains for the upcoming spring racing season.

Bed Stuy, Brooklyn is an interesting place to live in 2015. It’s currently a hive of fast-moving gentrification and rent spikes in one of the oldest African-American family oriented neighborhoods. Most of the buildings are old beautiful brownstones and parts of it are fairly remote (more than a mile from a subway station).
Long bike ride early in the morning on a warm day, followed by skating around with friends and ending up at the park or the beach with drinks and photographs.
Currently, the still affordable rent in a ridiculously expensive city.
Seemingly never-ending winters.
Most people are okay with walking everywhere. I never take the subway, I always travel via bike or skateboard.
