After the three stages in the Netherlands, the race moves to Calabria in the south of Italy.
The route generally takes the riders north, frequently visiting the Apennines, with stages in the mountains of Friuli and the Dolomites coming later in the race.
Vince Reichardt is a genuine expert in still life images. Matilda Lindeblad is one of Sweden's most established and respected food photographers whose clients include the largest Swedish food magazines and food manufacturers. With one leg placed in documentary reporting photography, and the other in commercial picture advertising.
But perhaps not the kind of still lifes you are familiar with, paradoxically enough, there is often a strong sense of movement in Reichardt's still lifes. When you view Anna Kern's image output, it doesn't take long to appreciate why she is one of our most soughtafter photographers. Breathtaking adventure shots interwoven with warm family scenes.
