just one of many great images in the
Teams of Portland photo booth collection.
See them all here.
The idea was to pay homage to the distinctive bike teams, clubs, and people that make our cycling scene so colorful and then present it to the thousands of people that came to town for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show that was held in Portland in early February.
In addition to a museum-like exhibition in the lobby of Wieden + Kennedy’s Pearl District headquarters, the Teams of Portland project included a robust website full of photos, videos, and specially created maps of Portland made by each team in the exhibit.
At the opening night party they also set up a photo booth and snapped over 600 images of whoever showed up with a bike. The result is an awesome array of characters doing all manner of interesting things for the camera: A topless lady on a freak bike, leapord-skin fixies, mini-bike wheelies, a human pyramid, handstands, and oh so much more!
All the photos have finally been uploaded for your viewing pleasure. Go on over to TeamsofPortland.com to browse through them and see selected images. (Tip: wait for them all to load and watch the “flip book”). Below is the flyer announcing the collection.
