Front End Details – Brabham BT53 – Dallas Grand Prix 1984
The Formula One race cars I photographed generally had unusually high quality construction. But some exhibited an excellence of design and execution that placed them above the rest. My personal favorites were Gordon Murray’s Brabhams. Every component of his cars revealed clear evidence of his ingenious imagination with thought and attention to detail applied to precise, elegant, reductionist fabrication. They were thrilling examples of the Art of the Machine.
