I unofficially met photographer Dmitry Gudkov on Twitter (@gudphoto) through the #bikeNYC hashtag, then officially met him at this year’s Bike Expo New York in early May where I modeled in a fashion show for Momentum Magazine. Dmitry’s #BikeNYC gallery of breezy, casual photos of real New Yorkers with their bicycles is a delight to peruse. I’m thrilled to be included.

The photo (and the story behind it) wound up in The New York Times LENS blog, with the story written by David W. Dunlap. Here is the story: “Step Away From the Camera!” Today, in his City Room capacity, Mr. Dunlap wrote another piece … Continue reading
