FILLINGES,

FRANCE

Shadow

Play

With its clean lines and bold

contrasts, it’s easy to see why this

BMX shot was chosen as Red Bull

Illume’s ‘Best of Instagram’ winner

this March. But when photographer

and filmmaker Baptiste Fauchille

set up his camera at this bowl in

Fillinges, a small town in the Haute-

Savoie region of eastern France,

he had no idea he was about to

take an award-winning image.

“My first thought was to make

a top-shot video with the drone,”

says Fauchille. “Then I realised that

the bowl was really clean: no tags,

no dust. I was able to have the rider

and his shadow come out well.

I asked Alex Bibollet [a rider in the

team of BMXers, photographers

and videographers Fauchille was

with] to do what he did best, and

I immortalised the moment.”
