"Bicycles Open Doors” is a collection of photography by Leigh Pate, a local cyclist and photographer and features photographs from beautiful, vibrant India.

Artist statement:
Traveling by bicycle takes you far off the tourist path and into beautiful rural areas rarely seen by Westerners. Local people are generous and kind, and bicycles open doors to experience their daily lives. These photographs capture unique images of the people met along the way as they go about their daily lives. Even the humblest person from the poorest village will labor in the fields dressed in a colorful sari, or take their goods to market on an ox cart painted bright colors and decorated with flowers. We expect images of India to be about grinding poverty, overcrowding and filth. These photographs convey the beauty and strength we often don't see while on the typical tourist trail, and celebrate the color and beauty that is part of everyone's everyday life. Artist present.
