It's all about the pictures in this gallery, especially about all kinds of my favorites. I try to show how many ways there are for reflecting on the theme of the car without getting boring.
I'm lucky for having been privileged to drive several hundred various cars so far, some of them infinitely awesome and enjoyable. And I have been able to photograph much more in the recent years. Unique specimens and mass products, let them be small or huge, beautiful or shapeless, lightning fast or hardly moving.
I have always been amazed by the technical inventiveness of old cars. I can appreciate the purposeful simplicity of a racing car built in the 1920s or 30s much more than any technical wonder from the latest couple of decades. Not to mention when functionality is matched by beauty, like in the case of the Salmson you can see here. It would have been so great to be one of those photographers in that age, who used rudimantary tools and low sensitivity film or glass plates to capture so many brilliant pictures. Or even in the 1950s when it was still possible to take race-photographs from a close proximity, standing at the side of the track, feeling the smell of exhaust, burnt tyres and oil.
