Blurry Photographs of Unsuspecting Cyclists in Motion

Italian photographer Massimiliano Sarno has a habit of catching unsuspecting subjects as they whiz by on their wheeled vehicles. Whether they're on a motorcycle, bicycle, petty cab, or even a shopping cart, Sarno captures the beautiful motion of these solitary figures mounted on their ride. Everything around them is an absolute blur as they casually flash through their city.

Sarno's growing black and white collection of images have a voyeuristic feel to them as the photographer reveals his fascination with strangers in motion through his lens. Each character he documents exudes a sense of personality through their transporting carriage of choice, demeanor, posture, and the artistic streaks of light in the background indicating speed.
