Photographer Camille McMilllan celebrates Transcontinental Race with worldwide exhibition

by CyclingTips

Camille McMillan’s exhibition of Transcontinental Race photography, titled Un-Lost, to appear at select Apidura retailers around the world from December 12th2017 until February 15th2018.Embargoed untilDecember 12th, 11:00GMT. London, December 11th-A gallery of Camille McMillan’s photography from the past three editions of the Transcontinental Race, titled Un-Lost, is to appear at Apidura retailers in 13 countries around the world.The exhibition will also appear online, at un-lost.com. Visitors to retailers and the exhibition’s website will find a selection of photographs from Camille’s time following the Transcontinental, a self-supported bikepacking race that takes riders from one corner of Europe to the other. ‘Un-Lost’ is inspired by a pre-race briefing given to riders by the race’s late founder, Mike Hall, in which he stressed the race’s need for self-reliance and resilience: “if you get lost, you’ll need to get un-lost.” Camille’s photographs capture the riders as they navigate unfamiliar and vast landscapes of Europe, showing that in an age of SPOT trackers, GPS and Google Maps, there’s something to be said for being lost and finding your way again.“I was in an exhibition called ‘Lost’ over twenty years ago,” says Camille, “pre-geotagging and NAVSAT. It was still possible to get physically lost, and it could happen accidentally. Now we have to choose to get lost -or so it seems. As a photographeronthe Transcontinental, I am forced to really study the riders, and their habitat. I may have little or no idea where I am, but if I am taking a photo of it, I am forced to get to know it, and if I’ve got to know a place, then am I really lost? Participation in the Transcontinental Race, either as a rider or as a photographer, can remind us what it’s like to be lost, and how to find our way again.”The exhibition will open on December 12th, running until February 15th 2018. Prints from the exhibition will beon sale atretailers and online. Each photo will be available as a limited edition, numbered print, or as a smaller, unlimited print. Camille will also be hosted by a select number of stores for events throughout the three-month period.We are just about to launch and exhibition of images from renowned photographer Camille McMilllan, celebrating the Transcontinental Race, and his coverage of the last three editions. This is a world wide exhibition that will be shown in 14 locations in 13 countries.

We wanted to reach out to you as we thought this would be perfect for CyclingTips, especially as we have two locations in Australia working with us on this fantastic project. We have provided a selection of images, commentary from Camille, and some background to the exhibition concept here, should you wish to feature the images as an online gallery.
