In collaboration with Nike Sportswear, New York photographer Tim Barber has opened his latest show, "Burning Bridges" - an exhibition of black and white photographs featuring 'NYC BridgeRunners'. ?The NYC Bridge Runners are a like-minded group of runners, and were a perfect fit to represent this collection" said Barber when speaking to W Magazine. The group, which is predominantly made up of young creatives, come together twice weekly to run the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges.
?I decided to shoot it all black and white to accentuate that gritty energy of the streets of New York? I was shooting real runners in their natural environments so I wanted the images to reflect and translate that realness? It was a really exciting challenge, working with a group out in the elements. I grew up skateboarding, and I wanted to approach photographing the runners the same way I would approach photographing skaters. I've always loved the relationship skateboarding has with the city environment, and I wanted to show that same relationship with the runners.?
The exhibition will be open to the public through December at Nike STADIUM, 276 Bowery, New York, NY 10012.
