Mike Hopkins and Lacy Kemp in Whistler, BC photo by Paris Gore

Sitting here in the arid Southwest, I feel a chill while looking at Paris Gore’s feed of mountain biking awesomeness. Lots of riders in his shots are committed to massive air, which is downright impressive, but that’s not what gives me goosebumps. It’s Gore’s ability to capture the place-specifically the damp, verdant forests of British Columbia at this moment-that makes me want to snuggle deeper into my hoodie.

His photos move you from voyeur to smack in the middle of the action, wherever in the world that may be. There’s a tactile element to his work, where you can taste the Utah dust, feel the trailside ferns tickling your calves in B.C., and shake that awesome, roller coaster feeling in your stomach from banking a corner super high and super fast…on some lucky-find trail just about anywhere.

Check out his full feed @parisgore and his full site, www.parisgore.com.

Diana from Whistler emailed us last week and this is what she said:

“You’ve managed to package up the AJ content I’ve come to love into something so freaking drool-worthy that there were actually arguments in our office over who got to take our one copy home for the evening. It is, in my humble opinion, the single best piece of publishing our industry has ever seen.”
