Some people collect pictures of pets or landscapes. Seijen Takamura collects pictures of forgotten bicycles. At Ignite 24, he explains what they’ve taught him:
“We have all walked past a Lonely Bicycle in our lifetime: A bike that is securely locked to a rack, fence, or pole… yet is missing wheels, saddles, handlebars, or more. How did these Lonely Bicycles ended up like that?”
By day, Seijen works for UP Global helping people accomplish things that have never done before. By night, he plays photographer where he looks for beauty in things that might otherwise seem forgotten.
