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.

CHARLES STREET, Stella Rankin, Event Specialist, Pinch Food Design for Downtownfrombehind.

Stella Rankin; Shakespeare major, moderate obsessive compulsive with a wine menu and championing a movement in green catering across the city. In a little under three years, Stella Rankin has passionately curated her career in events and catering. Last month she partnered with top-tier NYC culinary veteran Chef Bob Spiegel and Food Designer TJ Girard. Together they launched Pinch Food Design, an event catering group that delivers a bold new brand in catering. They believe in complete food integration and design, food as delicious as it is daring, and design as inviting as it is innovative. (And I tend to agree.) Always optimistic, bold and a pinch of crazy; Stella Rankin. DFB.
