Tom Olesnevich is a bicyclist and a photographer and he recently merged his two passions to create NYC by Bike.

NYC by Bike is a personal photo project of Olesnevich's in which he captures the busy noise of New York City's streets from an angle few have every captured before. Olesnevich uses a camera mounted to his bicycle wheels to get low near the pavement and to provide a view most people, even those who've visited New York, have never seen before. This slight adjustment to the angle in which his photos of New York City are taken makes a world of difference.

Another key to NYC by Bike is the variety of transportation methods captured in the series, which effectively incapsulates the hustle that is New York City.
