This is the photograph of a racing cyclist that led to the rest of The Riders series. This one was shot on a roll of seriously old and super grainy Kodak transparency film using a Pentax K1000. Shot at the 2006 (I think) Tour Down Under. The motion blur is achieved entirely in camera and further distortion added by the Takumar (Pentax) 28mm wide-angle lens.
The image gets its name from its similarity to Giacomo Balla’s Dynanism of a dog on a leash futurist painting
