Le BMX est bien plus qu'un sport extrĂŞme, c'est un mode de vie dans lequel chacun dĂ©veloppe sa crĂ©ativitĂ© et sa personnalitĂ©. C'est un sport de rencontre et de partage, il n'y a ni Ă©cole ni règles Ă  suivre pour apprendre Ă  manier son vĂ©lo. Il n'y a donc ni jugement ni discrimination, simplement une recherche de libertĂ©, d'adrĂ©naline et d'accomplissement personnel. C'est donc en ce 27 Mai 2017 que cet esprit de libertĂ© (mĂŞme si la police peut interfĂ©rer de temps Ă  autre - voire photo ) s'est retrouvĂ© dans la rue afin de faire parler sa crĂ©ativitĂ©.
En tant que pratiquant du BMX, il Ă©tait impossible pour moi de louper cette incroyable journĂ©e. Je m'y suis rendu avec mon vĂ©lo et mes camĂ©ras afin de mettre en images ce sport qui est encore peu connu du "grand public". Il Ă©tait important pour moi de montrer cet esprit de convivialitĂ©, de fraternitĂ© et surtout de mixitĂ© que l'ont retrouve Ă  Londres de par sa grande variĂ©tĂ© de nationalitĂ©. L'idĂ©e Ă©tait de photographier Ă  l'argentique pour accentuer cette atmosphère "old School british" et garder cet Ă©vĂ©nement authentique.
 

BMX is more than just an extreme sport, it's a lifestyle in which everyone has their own creativity and personality. It's a sport of meeting and sharing, there is no school or rules to learn how to control your bike. Therefore there is no judgment or discrimination, just a search for freedom, adrenaline and self-accomplishment. Indeed, in May the 27th of 2017, the freedom's spirit (even if the police can interfere from time to time - see photo) found a place on the street to talk about his creativity. The level was quite committed, with very nice actions and fortunately ended without big injuries. As a BMX rider, it was impossible for me to miss this incredible day. I went there with my bike and my cameras to put in images this sport which is little known of the general public. It was important for me to show this spirit of conviviality, fraternity and especially of the mix that we find in London because of its great variety of nationality. The idea was to photograph flim to accentuate this atmosphere "british old school" and keep this event authentic.
