Cycle Seen aims to bring together images by fine artists, photojournalists, commercial photographers and bike/photo enthusiasts to tell the fullest story of Portland’s current biking scene.
What is Cycle Seen?:
CycleSeen is an exhibition of photographs and documentation representing the bicycle culture in the Portland Metro area. This project is a celebration of the bike community through pictures. Portland has an astonishingly diverse and unique community of cyclists ranging from daily commuters to bike performance groups. Various sub-cultures such as bike builders, road bike enthusiasts, bike messengers, safety and bike advocates all thrive in Portland to make up the dynamic mix of Portland’s Bike Culture. The exhibition showcases photographs and illustrations that represent cycling in PDX over the last two years, including a combination of materials from invited photographers/artists and images selected from a juried call for submissions.
The five jury members are: Ayleen Crotty, director of Filmed by Bike, Jonathan Maus founder of bikeportland.org, Carye Bye director of Red Bat Press, local artist Nikki Kress and project director as Rachel J. Siegel.
