My first question is: why didn’t someone think of this before?
Forget the usual swimsuit lineup, almost everyone looks fantastic on a bike. It must be something about engaged muscles and coordination. For it’s 2010 calendar, the Swiss Institute in New York, has produced Artists on Their Bicycles New York 2010, in a limited numbered edition of 500. The usual subjects are proudly represnted from February’s Collier Schorr to Pierre Huyghe, for November and David Byrne and Cindy Sherman in December . My personal favorite is October’s Ryan McGinley who always creates a stir wherever he goes. The calendar, edited by Emma Reeves, Gianni Jetzer and Design Li, Inc is photographed by the incomparable Lukas Wassmann (http://www.lukaswassmann.com), a young Swiss photographer who lives between Berlin and Zurich who has one of the best takes on the genially absurd I’ve seen in years.
