Some projects are born out of an obsession with a specific subject or concept. In this case, it was a gradually brewing interest in the forms of bicycles. Bicycles for the most part have geometries that can be boiled down to a few simple shapes—two triangles, two circles, with some doodads attached here and there. Bicycles also exist in a nearly infinite variety of colors. These two visual traits, their common morphology and chromatic diversity—as well as their ubiquity—led me down a rabbit hole of visual exploration. Over time, I also came to notice that some bicycles end up parked in environments that sympathize with the character of the bike, whether that be visually or in a narrative sense. My interest grew into an obsession as time went on and I couldn’t stop photographing bicycles, of which there is no shortage in Tokyo, no matter where I went. These images are the fruits of this obsession.
