  • RideLondon Classique 2018

    This last weekend saw a massive collision of all things cycling. It was the final weekend of the Tour de France – fabulously won by Geraint Thomas. That had been pushed back a week to stay clear of the World Cup. Meanwhile it was also the Saturday night of the Dunwich Dynamo, from London Fields…

  • Empty Essex

    Empty Essex from Adam Bowie on Vimeo. Empty Essex is the name of ride in Jack Thurston’s excellent Lost Lanes book (NB. The first one. There have been two others since, for Wales and the West Country). The route starts in Southminster in Essex, heading out to Bradwell-on-Sea and past the St Peter-on-the-Wall chapel on…

  • London Nocturne 2018

    [Scroll down for more photos – and even more over on Flickr] I like to get along to the London Nocturne when I can – the Mr Porter London Nocturne to give it its proper title. There are a series of races across the afternoon and into the evening. Earlier in the day, before I…

  • New York

    A selection of photos I took recently in New York. There are plenty more over on Flickr.

  • Three New Exhibitions

    There are some really good exhibitions on at the moment in London. Actually, there are always really good exhibitions on. But over the weekend I went to three new ones, and all three were really good, and well worth visiting in their own rights. I spent a May Sunday visiting the three and using a…

  • Gursky

    In 2011 a record price was set for the sale of a photograph. Rhein II by Andreas Gursky was sold at Christie’s for $4.3m. It was the then highest price paid for a photograph (and likely remains so). Compared to the Leonardo da Vinci Salvador Munci painting that was sold for $450m last year, that’s…

  • Giro D’Italia – T-Shirt

    It has been a while since I screen-printed anything, so with Simon Yates in the Maglia Rosa at the moment, winning today’s stage at the Gran Sasso d’Italia, I made the t-shirt above. I’m reasonably happy with it, and that’s a treated image of Fausto Coppi on the right, the five times winner of the…

  • Snow and Mist

    Snow and Mist from Adam Bowie on Vimeo. The country has been covered with snow for the last week or so, but it’s not straightforward to get some spectacular drone shots because of the weather. Consumer drones aren’t capable of flying while it’s snowing. And you also have to consider wind speed, and there’s been…

  • Wicken Fen: A Cycle Ride from Ely to Cambridge – Stuck in Draft #4

    Here’s a cycle ride I took in April 2016. I think the winter and spring months are quite a nice time to do this ride. It’s not especially demanding and is easy to reach from London with direct trains from King’s Cross. Another in my series, Stuck in Draft. Reading Rain recently, I realised that…
