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.

EAST 11TH STREET, Jeremy Filgate, Creative Director Publicis and Angela Ong, TV Producer Grey for Downtownfrombehind.

Jeremy Filgate and Angela Ong. Husband and Wife. West Villagers. Bike Enthusiasts. Ad Geeks. Can’t keep their hands off one another. When Jeremy isn’t riding around grabbing a fist full of his wife’s booty, you can find him at Publicis. Jeremy has worked all over the world including Sydney, Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai and now NYC. He’s addicted to eBay and is a constant collector of bikes, shoes, art, vintage sunglasses and furniture. When Angela isn’t having her booty grabbed by her husband, she’s playing TV Producer at Grey. She loves riding her bike, despite being hit by a car three years ago. Ouch. Angela is from Singapore where the two originally met. Creative Director meets sassy Producer, fall in love and conquer the world together. They make quite the terrific twosome. They’re always out riding their bikes so if you see them on the mean streets of NYC, sayg’day or, ni hao ma!  DFB.
