Jesse Alexander is one of the most famous race car photographers in history. His images of vintage automobiles, drivers, designers and spectators on the European race circuit, during the 1950s, 60s and 70s, are collected and exhibited by museums and galleries throughout the world.
A colorful view of Motor Sport history from the lens of a living legend, Jesse Alexander. The audio narration is insightful and entertaining. Brilliant.
I have been a fan of his photographs for many years. Happy to have it in digital form.

Beautifully done! I was amazed at the artistry of both the photography by Jesse and in the composition of the book by Oliver. The narratives brought it to life!
