Even if you’re not familiar with Lorence’s name, you’ve seen his work. It’s hard to avoid, and impossible to miss. The Vancouver photographer has earned more BIKE mag cover shots (30, by the time the iconic mag shuttered) than any other photographer.

Lorence rose to international fame with North Vancouver’s North Shore. His images of the dark woods helped make the B.C. trails, and the riders and builders on them, famous. The early days of freeride helped make Lorence famous, but his skill and incredible work ethic have kept him at the top of the mountain bike photography game for decades now. In Lightfall, Anthill shows why.
