How do you get places?
In 2011 Italians bought more bicycles than
cars. The streets of Italy are
lined with them!
Some are new; some are rusted old companions. Some have vegetable crates wired on them, some have a wicker basket, and others have leather bags attached to the back.
Who rides them? Where do they go?
Every bicycle tells a story. One carries vegetables to a produce stand at Campo de’ Fiori. One circles the town of Lucca as a mother takes her child out for a ride. One takes a student to the Galleria dell' Accademia to study Michael Angelo’s David. One is leaning against the wall of a bakery in the Jewish Ghetto where a young boy left it to run in for biscottini.
What is the rest of the story?
I recently had the opportunity to print these pictures on 11x14 Canvas and place them in Lizzy Mayz Furniture Boutique for sale! You can stop by her shop on 6th Ave. to see them in person and buy through her or, for a discounted price, you can contact me directly using the form below!
