Work: Grayson West, Tour de France

photograph by Grayson West

Utah based photographer Grayson West is doing a fascinating sports photography project this month where he documents scenes from the Tour de France on his iPhone. His decisive moments are records of events he’s seeing in front of him – on television. The immediacy of the moments he records, usually at the height of action, create a dual layered mediation two steps removed from the real event. The genius and controversy of this process is his use of a remote photographer’s lens to give him access. From there the act of selection, part of the core of still photography, is up to him. No press pass needed.
