Gordon Murray Reading The Passion And Precision Catalog – Dallas GP 1984
This was a great moment for me. Gordon Murray was reading his interview with me in the Passion and Precision exhibition catalog. Yes, that is a “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols” T shirt. No one else was anything like Gordon Murray. He didn’t just design race cars, he thought about F1 as a total system down to the smallest detail. In the few short years I had to talk with him and observe his ingenious, original thinking I had no doubt he was a great artist.
On another note, today is the anniversary of Poetics of Speed. On October 3, 2011, I began this blog as a record of my experiences photographing mid 1980’s Formula One and Le Mans racing. I never expected the enthusiastic response I’ve received and I’m grateful for the appreciation. Thank you.
