Shane Connelly, who was one of the guiding lights in Exchange Dublin; recently started a project creating short video portraits of Dublin cyclists. I’ll be shooting and editing eight of these brief portraits, while Shane carries out the interviews (and handles all the thankless organising!). The idea is to humanise cyclists in the face of mounting evidence that drivers do not see us as fully human. Cyclists are often depicted as hordes of lycra clad fit young men, but this doesn’t reflect the diversity of cycling road users in the city.
We’re still actively seeking participants, particularly from underrepresented communities. More info here – http://cyclistsofdublin.com/
