Philipp Hympendahl, whose cycling photography has been published in numerous leading media covering the sport, and Tim Farin, a writer who has been covering pro racing and sportive cycling events for a decade, will present their recently released first book, “Beyond the Finish Line”, at LMNH Mare Street in London. The event will mark the official launch of the independently published book, initiating a special exhibition of Hympendahl’s stunning cycling panoramas that will go on until 16th March.
“Beyond the Finish Line” showcases some of the best cycling photography Hympendahl has to offer, with impressions ranging from the Champs-Elysées in Paris via the Northern Classics to amateurs heading for glory on local tracks and streets.
“Beyond the Finish Line” is a thoughtful book that derives from Hympendahl’s long-running project offering a novel view of pro and amateur cycling. It has gained critical acclaim from such artful magazines as Bahamontes (Belgium), Tour (Germany) and Soigneur (The Netherlands), has been greeted by professionals like multiple Tour de France stage winner Marcel Kittel (“Finally an all-new perspective of our sport”) and gathered 5-star-ratings from buyers on Amazon in Germany and the UK. The book Hympendahl’s and Farin’s “experiment in taking time to patiently – even serenely – reflect on a matter otherwise dominated by speed”.
