New show in London at Chris Beetles Fine Photographs. July-15th through August 24th.
“Jesse Alexander is the quintessential motor-sport photographer, whose images form a unique archive of racing during the mid 20th century. Inspired by the great photojournalists of the time, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa et al, Alexander applied their reportage aesthetic to his work on the race-track, resulting in a style that has as much poetry as it does visual horsepower. The names and places are legendary – Moss, Clark, Hill, Spa, Nurburgring, Le Mans – and the pictures capture the excitement, glamour and danger surrounding this golden age of motor sport.”
