Rouleur Books to Release Tim Kölln’s The Peleton
You might be familiar with Tim Kölln and his photographs of professional road racing from his work for Rouleur Magazine. And, if you were an early-bird to reading that mag, you mihgt have seen his photos entitled ‘The Peloton’ in issue 4 – a series of portraits of pro riders taken against a white background, the moment they climb off their bikes at the finish of major races such as the Paris-Roubaix.
For me, they are some of the most beautiful and insightful photos of road racing, and now Rouleur is publishing them in a book. Kölln spent five years travelling with the pro peloton to all the big events, and succeeded in capturing a whole generation of riders, from big stars such as Mark Cavendish down to the lowliest domestique.
It comes out on November 19th and is certainly pricy, but it looks amazing; Keep reading for some examples of the black-and-white portraits, or visit the website for more info, pics and pre-orders.
