Wonderful images from a great artist and one of the best motorsport photographers of all time. Thanks!

Jesse captures emotions of people in Motorsports

Jesse consistently captures the essence of his subjects through his entire career. The intensity of the sport and its people is on every page. I am privileged to own some of Mr. Alexander's early prints and some of his earlier books.


As a photographer and a fan of motorsport, this book appeals to me on so many levels. Taken when I was less than two years old, the images in this book show a period which I have only experienced in retrospect. The audio captions deepen the experience of the extraordinary photographs. I especially enjoy the images of the drivers in their cars, unsure of what's to come and fully aware that they might not live to see the finish.
