When she was in her early twenties, Martha Retallick set the goal of bicycling through all 50 of the United States. She accomplished this over a twelve-year period, traveling more than 15,000 miles in the United States, plus a bit of Mexico and Canada.
Traveling without the protective bubble of a vehicle provides a wonderful opportunity to see, hear, feel, and smell the world around you.
Add to this the minimalist nature of bicycle travel. Having limited carrying space forces you to rely on as little photographic equipment as possible. On her bike, Martha only had room for one camera body and one lens. So, that's what she worked with.
Bike-tography presents a collection of photos from her bicycle travels and from 'round-town rides in her hometown, Tucson, Arizona.
