I'm very pleased to be starting an exciting project documenting an amazing group of artisans. I'll be creating environmental portraits and photo essays of various custom bicycle framebuilders throughout the state of Oregon.
I'm particularly excited about my first subject, Andy Newlands of Strawberry Bicycle in Portland, Oregon. He has been handbuilding lugged, steel bicycle frames (brass brazed) for 38 years now. Of particular note in his build style is his use of his own investment-cast rear wishbone. If you'd like to learn more about Strawberry Bicycle, you can go to www.strawberrybicycle.com.
