It was all about having the Flow. Having the Flow was being half dead, passing through the lattice of the streets and traffic at an oblique angle, meshing with the City like the chain on the rear cog, never resting, never coasting, never changing gears.

Hopefully Henri Cartier-Bresson doesn’t need any introduction from me. But if you’re scratching your head with confusion, take a look at Matt Lingo’s small write up on Recfail.
And if you’re still interested…I would suggest picking up Issue 34 of Rouleur.
Magnum Photos legend Henri Cartier-Bresson follows Robert Capa’s extraordinary collection of the 1939 Tour in issue 31 with an equally beguiling set of historical images from the Velodrome d’hiver in Paris. Jack Thurston sets the man’s work in context at a venue with a notorious past. The cover image is undoubtedly one of our finest.
Known as “the Cannibal” for his insatiable hunger to win, Merckx gobbled up 525 race victories, an unrivaled legacy lionized in this once-in-a-lifetime homage. Merckx 525 presents newly restored photographs from private collections, the Merckx family, and European newspaper archives, shedding new light on this awe-inspiring athlete’s career from promising youth in Belgium, to fabulous darling of Europe, to hardened veteran of the bike-racing wars.
With authoritative text and keepsake craftsmanship, Merckx 525 digs deeper than any book before to reveal the man behind the legend, cycling’s incomparable Eddy Merckx.
“Merckx 525 is a unique collection of exclusive photographs, including some that even I had not seen before. It is the only work authorized by me.and the first truly complete record of my accomplishments.” – Eddy Merckx
