29 year-old German photographer Nils Laengner is becoming a famous face in the fixed gear scene. During Red Hook Criterium London No.3 Nils had to idea to capture the faces of RHC L3. It was his das that convinced him to make an article out of it. All in all we can say that a beautiful portrait series is the result.
Photography: Nils Laengner
Project: Nils & Tom Laengner
Nils on the series “I just wanted to do something different then just taking pictures during the race. So I added the portraits. It’s like band photography (…) everyone knows how the band looks like on the stage..it is (more) interesting to see them backstage or in an other surrounding (…) something new something real (…) that is what I want to add when I am taking pictures during an event like RHC. I would love to do this more often, it could turn into a longtime project.”
