New York BIke Dreams Zine Operation Tomodachi Edition

Japanese native Takuya Sakamoto  or by many "Tak" has been photographing the New York City bicycle messenger and street culture for more than 10 years. Being a bicycle messenger himself, his images take you right into the culture and captures his subjects with a personal touch and an original eye. New York BIke Dreams is Tak's blog, which has been a resource for the bike messenger scene for many years.  Tak has produced a simple zerox copied zine of his photography, which is produced in limited runs and perfectly suites the gritty and uncanny imagery he captures on a daily basis.

In an effort to aid the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief, Tak will be donating his zine to anyone who donates $10.00 to the American Red Cross. Just simply go to and click on dontate funds. Once you donate, forward the confirmation email to Tak at and Tak will send you a copy of his zine (US only!!).

Help make a difference, and get an original piece of NYC bike culture!
