VITTI SPRING 21 INTRO
I recently had the opportunity to meet up with cyclist Patrick Roldan in Chinatown to shoot the Spring 2021 Collection for Vitti Cycling.
Shot early in the morning, it was a rare time to see the streets as empty as they were. People just leaving the building to go to work, and pigeons walking freely down the middle of the sidewalks. Combined with the early morning light, it was a special project to shoot, everywhere we went there was a photograph to be taken.
We spent quite a bit of time around Doyers Street, one of the only curved streets in lower manhattan. It brought memories from the Lunar New Year festival right before the lock down started. To go back more than year later made it feel right to shoot there.
It was great experience to meet Patrick and talk about cycling and other things, both of us being first generation Asian Americans, and cycling in the city.
