All Photos by Emily Maye
There has been much chatter over the release of the Collarbone, an iPad app that features the work of world-renown cycling photographers from various global cycling events. I met Max at NAHBS and he gave me an inside look at the functionality of the Collarbone. Essentially, it’s a regularly-updated online iPad magazine that allows the reader to be immersed in the world of cycling from the racer’s and the photographer’s perspectives. Don’t expect those finish-line shots here, the Collarbone looks to capture the feel of events, moreso than the race portraits found in other periodicals. And since it’s web-based, the content is always fresh, updating almost daily.
I’m starting the show off with a few selects from photographer Emily Maye. Her recent trip to the 2012 Paris Roubaix provided the Collarbone with a series of dynamic photographs. Emily’s work is some of my favorite and you can see why below.
Here’s an example of the interface, shown on a slide the Ronde collection, available now. You’re able to buy prints and for a small fee and purchase exclusive galleries to view.
The Collarbone is created by Camille (formerly of Rouleur, and co-author of Le Metier with Michael Barry) and Luke Scheybeler, the co-founder and former creative director of Rapha. Both Camille and Kristof Ramon’s work has been featured thus far and many of the galleries are free.
Pick up the app at the iTunes store and see Emily’s full gallery tomorrow!
