downtownfrombehind (DFB) is a photographic series capturing subjects riding their bike from behind on some 200+ streets, avenues and lanes below 14th street in New York City.

The result is an environmental portrait for each street and subject with a goal to highlight a set of individuals, emerging and established, each uniquely contributing; culturally, socially and physically, to make this part of the city what it is today.

The project has been widely covered in the press, from New York Times, Huffington Post, Coolhunting, Vogue, Nylon Magazine and many blogs (thankyou).

Subjects photographed to date include industrial designers, architects, creative directors, restauranteurs, entrepreneurs, hoteliers, artists and academics.

LISPENARD STREET, Candice Lake, Photographer, Writer and Blogger for Downtownfromhehind.

Her official title is Global Client Relations Manager for the quintessential Parisian fashion house Rue Du Mail. But twice yearly she joins the fashion circuit as a contributing photographer, writer and blogger for Vogue US, UK and Australia (amongst others), sighting trends, snapping models and interviewing key personalities along the way. The best part about this junket?, is of course ending it in Paris - merci beaucoup!  There’s a good chance you’ll find her at Cafe Charlot in the Marais district at the end of the night (it’s opposite one of the oldest converted markets in Paris XV1 century, and a perfect place to find champagne and stinky cheese).  A bit of a humble style icon herself, think Meryl Streep in Out of Africa meets Helmut Newton, at the end of the day she calls London home where she lives with her architect beau. Her home, she says, is their luxury. DFB.
