Kyle Shaw, editor and co-owner of The Coast, used the paper’s 22nd birthday as an excuse to flip through some back issues and reflect on his favourite 22 features from the past two decades.

Halifax, meet Ingram Barss. The bike enthusiast and photo fiend is taking over our Instagram this weekend to help celebrate Bike Week. Let’s have Barss introduce himself;

I am a photographer and I teach photography at NSCC. I am also an avid cyclist,and Instagram user..on my personal feed, I post only in triptychs, so doing single shots for you will be a bit of a departure. I used to shoot for the Coast a lot, and then moved to Los Angeles, and from there Toronto. I was very happy to move back to Halifax, and I am also very happy to be shooting for the Coast again.

Follow along as Barss explores the cyclist events happening in Halifax and Dartmouth with #TakeoverWeekend. And if you’re an Instagram-addict that wants to run our next social media takeover, drop us a line.
