The Book “For The Beauty Of It”<br />New Release 2008 Image

In 2007 noted French Efficiency Expert and cycling enthusiast Jean Marc Velez rode in the Race Across America (RAAM) tour. Called, “the world’s toughest bicycle race”, cyclists pedal 3,000 miles from Oceanside, California to Atlantic City, New Jersey in just over a week. Velez asked Olivier to chronicle this momentous event.

What resulted is an awe-inspiring collection of panoramic photos that capture the spirit of the race like never before. Shot entirely by Pojzman, the book is being called, “thought-provoking” (RAAM) and is sure to inspire not only cycling buffs but photography admirers and collectors as well.

Pour La Beaute du Geste (For The Beauty of It) is available for sale through the RAAM website.
