Paris Gore’s Through The Trees [Seattle Recap]
[UPDATE] By Chris Shalbot, Seattle, WA: In case you missed it here’s what happened on April 11th at evo’s store in Seattle when we threw a party with Paris Gore, unveiling his photos and launching us into the world of mountain bike retail. This gallery will be moving to Portland, OR in May. Stay tuned for details.
Based in Bellingham, Washington, Paris graduated from the Commercial Photography Program at Seattle Central and has pursued his passion of documenting the characters and culture of mountain biking. First as a rider, then as a photographer, Paris has long studied the interplay of movement, light and landscape in the mountains. From behind the lens, he translates those stories for his audience through images crisp with authenticity.
His work is routinely featured in major publications and commercial ad campaigns. Shooting a wide variety of disciplines, Paris’ work grasps the raw emotion in World Cup downhill racing to big mountain freeriding, trail riding and dirt jumping. His work has earned top steps at contests such as second place at the 2014 Crankworx Deep Summer Photo Challenge and Top 250 in the 2013 Red Bull Illume Photo Quest.
