The Collarbone: Emily Maye’s Paris Roubaix Photos Available Tomorrow Apr 12, 2012

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!

    Saw her stuff when it was exhibited at Golden Saddle. Her photos are are like seeing the best parts of a race as if you were actually there, she captures the feeling of it all. Love the one of the Rabobank dude cranking up the grade in the Tour of Ca with a string of goo swinging out of his mouth and behind him

  • Great images. I think the Collarbone is a fantastic concept. Looking forward to see it grow.
