Photographer Zhaohua Sen's bikeless images give pause.
It's one of the more clever photographic concepts I've seen in a while, if not downright gimmicky, but who can resist the "bikeless" images of photographer Zhaohua Sen. Sen made images of everyday people riding bikes. The art is in the concept of removing the bikes from under the riders in the images with photo editing software. The shadows of the bikes remain, and the posture of the riders who seemingly float above the ground now look so odd without the bikes beneath them. I give this photographer an A+ for is ingenuity.
