Master Photographs of an Incredible Era of Auto Racing 29 décembre 2010
Par Daniel G. Lebryk - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book transported me to an incredible era of Formula One racing, 1962-1969. I could almost smell the exhaust, the Castrol, the burning rubber, and the courage. The Golden Age of Formula 1 is full of some of the most beautiful black and white images of auto racing published.

Rainer Schlegelmilch is a master photographer. The over two hundred pages of 11 x 14 black and white photographs include some of his earliest photographs from 1962. Schlegelmilch attended his first race, the 1962 1000km of Nurburgring, for his school of photography final exam photographing race drivers. Those early photographs hint at the genius he would show in his later works. By 1964, he truly understood how to photograph a race and not just portraits of drivers. Schlegelmilch continues to photograph Formula One today, a career of almost fifty years, and he shows no signs of repeating his work or tiring.

What is so remarkable about this volume is the intimate view of incredibly courageous drivers, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Jo Siffert, Bruce McLaren, Innes Ireland, Phil Hill, Dan Gurney, Jochen Rindt, Jack Brabham, and John Surtees. For each driver there is a perfectly exposed, focused, and printed portrait followed by several critical pictures of the driver and car. The informative captions were written by Hartmut Lehbrink. On occasion Lehbrink adds a little joke or remark about women and Formula One. But mostly it is remarkable that anyone would know so much about each individual in the frame. One caption mentions a person standing in mid background, not really part of the photograph, and points out that he would become a well respected automotive journalist. How anyone can remember all these details is incredible.

The driver portraits are like nothing I have ever seen before. In the 60's many drivers died while racing, safety measures were nothing like today (five point safety harnesses were first used by Jackie Stewart in the late 1960's - until that time, drivers simply sat in their car). Schlegelmilch has captured the intensity, the concentration, and the courage of every driver. Occasionally he captures relaxed moments, drivers laughing, talking, or stopping by to manage rebuilding a transmission.

The actual racing pictures are remarkable in their simplicity. At that time, spectators were separated from the cars by a very short knee wall, a light fence, bales of hay, or nothing. Schlegelmilch has an amazing ability to capture the closeness between spectator and a car racing at the limit of adhesion, so close to wiping out the spectators with one small mistake. Even more remarkable, all these pictures were taken with film cameras and likely without much of a motor drive. There was no such thing as 8 frames per second to capture the peak moment. Schlegelmilch had to predict what would happen and choose his moment very carefully. In the case of 35mm, he was limited to rolls of film with 36 exposures. The closing photograph of the book shows Schlegelmilch with a Hasselblad over his shoulder; that medium format camera was limited to 12 exposures per roll and had no motor drive of any kind. It took incredible skill to capture Jackie Stewart's BRM nearly a foot in the air cresting a hill at the Nurburgring, and see Stewart's eyes in perfect focus.

The 1960's had some of the most beautiful Formula One cars ever built. The engine was moved midship from the large rounded front engine cars of the 50's. With the engine in the rear, the nose was lowered and narrowed. These were much more graceful cars. There were no sponsors plastered all over these cars; these were not rolling billboards of the NASCAR world. Near the end of the 60's sponsor decals started to show up along with ungainly aerodynamic additions (wings everywhere, rear, front, and on the nose). The 70's were sponsor and wing crazy.

I have a predisposition to loving these particular cars and this book. The first wide screen or Panavision film I ever saw in a theater was the 1966 John Frankenheimer film Grand Prix. At the time, races were rarely televised, in car cameras did not exist, and the world of Formula One racing was an international mystery to a boy growing up in Northwestern Indiana (Eva Marie Saint was what dreams were made of). My most cherished Matchbox car was a blue 1960's BRM (I still have the tireless, driverless car today). Grand Prix was the most remarkable film I had ever seen, it started a lifelong love of all things racing, film, and photography.

The reason the film Grand Prix doesn't age very well, melodrama, is exactly what is absent from The Golden Age of Formula 1. These photographs are taken more from the point of view of a driver, crew member, or very close companion, than an outside spectator. They have an intimacy I have never seen in racing pictures. Racing is a chaotic business, very little is predictable. But yet Schlegelmilch manages to make taking those pictures look routine.

The foreword by Jackie Stewart does a nice job of setting the historical context of this book. It is easy to forget how far racing has come from those early days. There are many pictures of Stewart in this book, including his first win. The book ends as Stewart becomes a well known great Formula One driver. He would go on to have an amazing career in television broadcasting and a spokesperson for Ford and automotive safety.

Before seeing this book I was unaware of Rainer Schlegelmilch's photography. Given all the magazines and Formula One books I have read, it surprises me I have not seen his name credited. After scratching the surface of his website, it is clear Schlegelmilch has embraced the latest technology and continues to be relevant today. He is a master photographer.

The Golden Age of Formula 1 is a remarkable, beautiful, intimate view of Formula One racing.

Speed, danger and glamor 18 décembre 2010
Par Jon Warshawsky - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Other than an optimistic and unsentimental foreword by Jackie Stewart and a more nostalgic mini-essay -- Formula 1 in the Sixties: A Study in Zeitgeist -- The Golden Age of Formula 1 is a photo essay of the sport in the 1960s. Entirely in black and white, it is an elegant collection of veteran motorsports photographer Rainer Schlegelmich's work. On assignment in Monaco, Monza, Spa Francorchamps and other famed locales, he compiled the images for an engaging tour of a sport and an era that marked the height of glamor in perhaps any sport.

Oddly, while there is no doubt the cars were beautiful, it is the people that make 'Golden Age' an enjoyable collection. If you did not already know Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and even Lotus boss Colin Chapman, you get a tantalizing glimpse into their character here. (If Ralph Fiennes has not already planned to play Graham Hill in a racing film, there is no excuse for it -- they could be twins.) The photographs also tell the story of the sport back in the day.

Some favorites:

On pages 76-77, Giancarlo Baghetti gives an almost taxi-style lift to drivers Phil Hill and Bob Anderson, whose cars had crashed at Spa. An image speaks volumes about the sport and the fraternity of drivers in the 1960s.

On pages 90-91, F1 world champion is shown (badly) sewing up a tear in two-time world champion Graham Hill's racing overalls, to the amusement of a couple of female onlookers.

On pages 104-105 and 106, we get a famous view of Monaco (Gasometer turn), and what appears to be a pre-race chat between Jim Clark and Beatle George Harrison -- two icons no longer with us.

On page 115, what appears to be a full size Nikon mounted on the front of Jackie Stewart's helmet presages the sophisticated digital streaming images of today.

On pages 164-165, an amazing view of the Portier right-hander at Monaco, looking over the water. Photographers squat on the sidewalk next to the track, apparently risking death for the shot of a lifetime.

Finally, an equally remarkable photo of Jo Siffert stopping by an out-of-the-race Graham Hill to borrow Hills' visor at the French Grand Prix, as his own was steaming up. Hill is shown giving Siffert the thumbs up sign.

Unfortunately, F1 is also about the noise, speed and danger -- none of which survive translation to still images all that well. If you haven't already done so, you will want to see John Frankenheimer's classic film, Grand Prix, which is perhaps as close as we will get to an authentic racing movie with the flavor of the era. But Schlegelmilch's photography captures the danger -- fans behind simple mesh fences, drivers racing in polo shirts, photographers running out among the cars at the starting grid -- in a nuanced way. The more you study his photos, the richer they become, and he was inarguably at the right place at the right time.

Formula 1 is still the world's fastest and most glamorous sport. The danger is greatly reduced from "the golden age" of the 1960s, so in a sense things have gotten saner. But you have to admire the courage and sporting spirit of the men appearing here, who risked their lives in competition. The captions throughout this book allude to all of that, and are happily very thorough. It is primarily a collection of photographs, though.

Golden Age of Formula 1 is a very nicely produced/bound book, and it's hard to imagine that any vintage motorsports or current F1 fan wouldn't appreciate having this on prominent display in his/her home. It tries, and largely succeeds, in evoking the spectacle and adrenalin of those tiny, tube-shaped cars shrieking around the bends in the south of France.

A must for any Formula One fan 13 décembre 2010
Par ardyk - Publié sur
Format: Relié
If you are looking for a visually charged, in-depth look into Formula One racing, this book is it. Set in the 1960s, these photographs capture all the emotions and thrills associated with the sport from intimate shots of the racers to the crowds. There are no long journalistic texts with lots of stats. Instead the book is highly driven by the engaging photos, so it is like watching a movie or sportscast highlights clip with short detailed captions guiding you along the way. (Because sometimes, I really don't need the all the sports commentary.) Without any creative blurring or time lapsed imagery, the photographs still capture all the thrills and glory of the sport in its purity. It's a great addition to any Formula One fan's library.

Great Memoir to Early Formula 1 17 juillet 2011
Par Let Me Drive - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A beautifully done homage to the men, women and machines of Formula 1's early years. The photographs are amazing and many I would love to have on the wall of my study, many of Jimmy Clark, my adulthood idol whom I never saw race but quickly admired through the stories and photos like these. Many candid and revealing looks at the true heros and courageous, talented men who drove spectacular looking cars when the sport was insanely dangerous. It is a pictoral history of the era with great shots of most if not all of the era's greats. A must have for fans of Formula 1 of any era; before the Ecclestone's and corporate types homogenized the sport. I love it still but this book reminds me how and why my love started. Cannot recommend highly enough. By the way, if anyone knows how to purchase any of the photos, please reply to Thanks.
