Setting out from Shanghai, John Watson and Mission Workshop began their cycling tour of China's Yangtze River Delta. Using both film and digital formats, Watson photographed the surroundings and encounters with the local community. Led by their friends from Factory Five, they headed into a frenetic network of massive residential complexes, large industrial parks, and super highways. At first glance, the route seemed straightforward, however, the reality of the 1,000km trip was far more intense than anyone expected.
My good friend Chris Cono has put together a seasonal Stage Race called Fortune 700 in Pasadena CA, here are some of the exciting moments documented by our awesome production crew and I from the Winter Series 2011.
