If you have not yet seen the amazing photography exhibit entitled Faces of Cyclocross that is currently on display at the Hardin Centerfor Cultural Arts (and you don’t have a good excuse like living hundreds of miles away), then shame on you! Photojournalist Eric T. Wright shot all of the images during the 2011-2012 Bamacross season, which means that he schlepped cameras, lenses lights, sandbags, flashes, sheets for makeshift backdrops, extension cords and whatever else he may have needed to a fair number of the races in Birmingham with a vision of athleticism and mud captured on a stark white background. The results are stunningly detailed.
Would you like to catch the show before it comes down? You still have time. The exhibit will remain up at the CCA until the 31st of August. For more information about the exhibition, please go here. After the exhibit is taken down, I believe that selected images from the show will be on display in the Back Forty Beer Co.'s tap room.
