Miles of Portraits

A magazine and film documenting humanity, one bike ride at a time

On my 2017 bike trip across America from Yorktown, VA to Seattle, I set out to photograph the people I met along the way. Their portraits and stories illustrate the kindness that exists across America.

Since then, with help from my filmmaker friend Erik Douds, I’ve taken the series around the world. We’ve cycled thousands more miles around Alaska, the American Southwest, and South India on a truly life-changing journey.
