Portraits of The Men Of Motoracing
By: Jesse Alexander
Jesse Alexander's portraits are characterized by a combination of the openness of his subjects and the beautiful, almost painterly composition of the images. It's this quality that gives his photographs their unusual intimacy and poignancy.
Drivers and team principals appear relaxed and unguarded, a result of Alexander's personal friendships and familiarity with the teams. And Alexander's own notes and reminiscences of each portrait adds to the reader's enjoyment and understanding of the image. Though best known for his work from the 1950s through the 1970s, many of Alexander's recent photographs are included here.
Hardback, 280 x 320mm, 144 pages, 115 colour & 100 b&w illustrations.
