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.

HOWARD STREET.

HOWARD STREET, Martha Hunt, Model for Downtownfrombehind.

Discovered at a modeling competition (she was in the crowd), small town North Carolina lass Martha set sail to New York as soon as she finished penning her high school finals. You might recognize her from Hugo Boss or Y-3 campaigns or maybe an editorial spread in one of your favorite fashion magazines from Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Muse or Vogue. Whatever the case, we fell in love with the now New York local, Martha Hunt. When not traveling for work, she opts for a position on the best Chinatown rooftop in the city, her own. She’s inspired by the arts, music, fashion, film, Paris and the sea. Her must have travel item? Her Lieca digital camera. Martha plans on returning to school to become an astronaut. DFB.
