PRESS RELEASE: Sit back and let images take you to beautiful places around the globe with your mountain bike. Supernatural is a slideshow presented by Big Mountain Bike Adventures and features the art of three professional photographers. Firstly, Whistler’s own Blake Jorgenson will transport you to Switzerland’s highest peaks on a downhill trip. Jorgenson’s surreal images often convey a sense of dark emotion and awe and his images shine in the big mountains. Vancouver-based photographer Harookz, has moved up the ranks of mountain bike photography to become a household name, mostly in the new-school genre of riding. Harookz has cornered this style, from crazy man-made stunts in dank Squamish to loose urban jib sessions in gritty LA. He’s also got a knack for comical athlete portraits. In his words, “mountain biking in the solitude of the mountains, trying to ride another wave, earning my ethereal powder turns…I dig life in the elements. Life as a photographer helps me maintain a happy distance away from the routine 9 to 5.” Finally, West-Vancouver’s Sterling Lorence, who is known as one of the premiere mountain bike photographers in the world. Lorence’s iconic images are graced in ads and magazines across the globe. The show will wrap up with photos from Big Mountain Bike Adventure’s owner Chris Winter, an amateur photographer who’s been exploring the planet for a decade with his mountain bike.

Select framed photos from each photographer will be auctioned off with proceeds to local Whistler charity Zero Ceiling.  More info here.

When: Friday, April 17
Where: Millenium Place
Tickets: $9.99 with partial proceeds to Zero Ceiling, available at Millennium Place and Blake Jorgenson Gallery.
Time: 8:30
