Instagram of the Day: Bicycle Tricks on One Wheel
A Japanese Instagrammer, Mamoru Kanai, publishes images of himself performing one-wheeled bicycle stunts in his “Riding Pop” series. The photos feature Kanai performing “wheelies” (standing on the hindwheel) and “stoppies” (standing on the front wheel) while seated as if normally riding a bicycle. Since he can’t shoot photos of himself performing tricks he asks for a help from a skilled photographer friend.
“The most significant point about these portraits is the irony of performing stunts on ordinary bicycles that are made for moms with kids,” says Kanai.
