Talented photographer Kristof Ramon will be hanging a selection of one-off prints at tomorrow night's Bicycle Film Festival opening party at The Russet.
Kristof's prints include images he shot whilst following Rapha Condor JLT at the Tour of Britain. The Belgium based photographer spent the first three days in epic rain drenched British landscapes focusing on the experiences of the young riders in the race.
The exhibition begins on Thursday 3rd October, 7pm @ The Russet, London, E8 2BT.
Belgium beers will be available from the bar, entry is free, no pre booking required.
Kristof in his own words:
"As a film school graduate I've always been attracted to the independent off beat cinema of Jim Jarmusch, FF Coppola, Wim Wenders, Martin Scorsese, John Ford and Alfred Hitchcock; as such countless hours/days/months were spent inside dark movie theatres. As a TV director (for 15 yrs) for national Belgian networks, nothing much came close to real personal/creative work, so photography became the preferred outlet over time.
With sporadic international publications, a deal with the most popular Belgian (rock) radio station (photographing their shows & events) and a well received exhibition ('Visualized Sound', 2006) more interest was directed towards photography. In 2009 I first orientated my camera towards another passion: cycling. first road. then cross. then track. always skinny tires though! In 2012 I stopped being a TV director to become a full time cycling photographer. Life hasn't stopped accelerating ever since.
This is my first ever cycling exhibition and I'm extremely proud for it to be in London and at the BFF; it's the perfect fit."
