Photographer #216: Timm Kölln

Timm Kölln, 1976, Germany, lives and works in Berlin. For many years he has been following cycling races as the Tour the France, Paris - Roubaix and the Giro d'Italia. He is not your ordinary sports photographer, unlike his colleagues that photograph and register the various races with digital equipment, Timm still shoots everything on film. He sees cycling as an aesthetic sport and brings that back in his, mostly black and white, photography. In 2010 he released his book The Peloton. It contains strong images of the riders several seconds after they crossed the finish line. The photographs from the series Lo Stelvio are made with a pinhole camera. The following images come from the portfolio's Dolomiti, The Peloton and Lo Stelvio.
