There’s no smoke without fire
There’s no trick without trial
There’s no perfect shot without preparation
There’s no result without collaboration
Following the first installment of The Art of MTB #1
, JB Liautard
and Thomas Genon
are back with another collection of incredible photographs that marry the beauty of photography with that of mountain biking. And this time, we get to see behind the scenes in a fascinating film that reveals the depth of detail required to get that money shot.
From satellite images to hand-drawn diagrams. From the texture of the rock to the cultural heritage of the jumps. From the exact light of a sunset to a flash sticky-taped to a drone. When it comes to Jb Liautard and Thomas Genon, there’s no art without some science, and no madness without some method.
Their patience, perseverance, and very particular attention to detail produces something magical. Jb builds the idea, and Thomas buys into it. When their vision and skill collide, that snapshot in time is perfection.Rider: Thomas GenonPhotography: Jb LiautardVideo: Abel Nury
