The Tour De France - A Pictorial Inside View 27.56 MB - In 2014 I set out to tell the back-story of the Tour de France cycling race, in pictures.
My journey started in the Jura Mountains of eastern France bordering Switzerland and Germany, at the beginning of the Mountain Stages, and ended on the Champs-Élysées in Paris 16 days later.
Having full media accreditation allowed me to go where I wanted to, including the restricted areas, and I shot images to give the viewer a “tour of the Tour” – including how it looks and feels behind the scenes as well as in front of the TV cameras; the Caravan (an enormous traveling float parade), the build-up to the Stages, the Technical Area, the incredible Tour logistics, the Finishes, the Riders, the scenery, the Rest Days, and much more.
While this picture book was constructed around the 2014 Tour de France, the story is about how all Tours work. To my knowledge this is a story which has not been told until now.
The book is a picture book, with descriptions under each... image, and is best viewed on a COLOR device. Do you want to download or read a ebook? It is available in PDF or epub format in the source
