Drink Smoke, Flanders

Professional photographer Chris Milliman’s new photobook, Drink Smoke, Flanders, is now available. Milliman’s photo clients include Portland based companies Keen Footwear, Rapha Apparel, and others. His photos have also appeared in National Geographic and VeloNews. His new book was designed by Matt Stein of Weights & Pulleys, a creative design and branding firm based in Portland that also owns Beloved Cycles.

Myles Haselhorst from the Ampersand Vintage gallery and bookshop on NE Alberta Street says aside from the Portland connection, Drink Smoke, Flanders is “a fabulous book.” “It’s not often that a sense of artistry is brought to cycling imagery, but Milliman is really good at it.” Here’s more about the book from the Amsperand website:

“Chris Milliman’s latest photobook documents a typical day of cyclocross racing in Flanders. A mix of color and black and white photographs, the book rightly suggests that the heart of cyclocross is as much in the spectating as it is in the racing.”

Here are a few images from the book…

With cyclocross booming in popularity in Portland and around the country, this book might be just what’s needed to help ‘cross addicts and fans make it through the off-season. You can purchase the book for $25 from Ampersand at 2916 NE Alberta St, Suite B or via their website.
