Photos and words by Andrew White

Print being the fickle fucker it is, images have the ability to fall through the cracks quite easily. In a normal world-and one which existed in the near past- a stockpile of photos from a trip would get efficiently divvied between editorial and advertising use with little leftover. And with the one-off photos that get shot either at home or with riders jumping on board a trip who aren’t included in the article, the opportunity to acquire a misfit photo is even greater. With the constant flux of pages printed and companies running and pulling adverts, a couple years ago my cache of available photos began to swing out of balance and never quite recovered.

A great benefit of the web is that it can cater to such a dilemma. What wouldn’t find a home in print now can easily be curated into a gallery.

Earlier this year, I began to make selects on what I wanted to show. It was at this time that we regained DIG and left print behind, and decided to not only do a brand new site, but to build it from the ground up which would take considerably longer than a generic turn-key. My images would have to wait a few more months. Given that some at the time were nearly two years old, waiting a bit longer wasn’t so much an issue. A true irony that photos would have to wait even longer for a digital publishing.

The following photos are no longer wanted living on my desktop.
