Hete Glassplinters Hot Splinters of Glass
Photo book by Chris Keulen
“As if you breathe in hot splinters of glass”, that is how cycling in Senegal feels, according to former cycle racer Peter Winnen. The sport’s ingredients are: dust, dry soil and temperatures well above forty degrees celcius. For five years I followed the main cycling races of Africa, in Senegal, Cameroon, Eritrea and twice in Burkina Faso.
Hot splinters of glass shows life in Africa according to cycling. In 70 photo’s I show the African cyclists’ dreams and ambitions. It is about adventure and high aspirations. There is no team tactics, nor doping. An African cyclist must fend for himself.
