Emily Maye – We Were Fought By Men Very Fast – July 2014
Beach London is delighted to present the debut solo exhibition of photographer Emily Maye.
Emily is primarily known for her work on professional cycling – as an embedded photographer with the Trek Factory Racing Team, as well a commercial photographer for Rapha’s partnership with Team Sky and a host of others – and we’re big cycling fans here. But it’s her eye for the drama, and the entire vast spectacle of a cycling eventthat sets Emily apart. Rarely will you have a line-crossing winner, arms aloft in celebration – Emily focuses on the behind-the-scenes detail; the kid who’s delighted to get a cap from the tour caravan; the groups of spectators lining the cobbled streets of Belgium drinking beer; the cobbled streets themselves – and it’s that reverence for her discipline that sits her nicely amongst Beach’s previous – mainly illustrator – exhibitors.
Emily‘s exhibition ‘We Were Fought By Men Very Fast’ opens at Beach on July 1st just in time for this year’s Tour De France, which, of course, passes through London via Yorkshire. It will focus on her work from this year’s ‘Classics’ – a series of one day (mainly) races through (mainly) Belgium and France, which are followed little on these shores, but are perhaps the most iconic cycle races on the continent.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a Rapha pop-up shop
The Exhibition will be re-shown at Look Mum No Hands in 2015.
