Description: An exhibit of unique bike images from Toronto to Tanzania by Toronto photographer Henry VanderSpek.
About me: As a Dutch-Canadian who grew up watching his father bike to work each day, Henry VanderSpek has a long history with bikes. Since developing a love for photography in the early 90s, Henry has noticed that bikes are a recurring theme in his images. Whether in Rwanda, Santa Monica, or the streets of Toronto, Henry finds bikes are often an artistic element in daily life. This show is a collection of some of Henry’s favourites and a small attempt to celebrate the diversity of how bikes are used worldwide. Drop by, enjoy, and get inspired for some spring cycling!
Meet the photographer: Saturday March 1st, 12-2 PM and Thursday March 20th, 6-8 PM.
Last year at the Danforth East Arts Fair, I ran into Henry Vanderspek of Culture Snap Photography. He had lots of wonderful photographs up in his booth, and a fair bit of them were of bicycles, so I got to talking with him.
He has a show of bicycle photos going on in March at the Runnymede library. I’m going to go check it out. You should too!
