Meet the Artists

Ron Bennett - I have had the great pleasure of living, traveling, and capturing images in more than 40 countries. In 2013, my wife Petra and I quit our jobs and spent more than 25 months bicycling the world, carrying everything we needed with us on our bicycles. In those 769 days, we cycled 28 countries and 14 US States. We met some of the most amazing and friendly people, stayed with strangers, pitched our tent with a circus,  and explored many of the World’s famous wonders that most people only read about. Upon returning home, we fell right back into our former jobs, but have continued the traveling. Our next dream is to one day bicycle the Pan-American Highway from Deadhorse, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina
