The Leica Blog, The Leica Blog, March 17, 2015

Born and raised in the tiny village of Briantspuddle in the county of Dorset in the United Kingdom, Phil Penman studied photography at the prestigious Berkshire College of Art and Design. A veteran commercial photographer with an unerring instinct for capturing the timeless and compelling in seemingly ordinary scenes, Phil Penman is also an avid bicyclist and semipro racer. In this interview he explains how he documented a 440-mile bicycle trek from New York to Montreal for Chalet Magazine astride his two-wheeler with a Leica M and M9.
