In Portraits, Jesse Alexander offers an intimate and emotional view of the people he has met in his remarkable 50-year career as a passionate motorsports photographer.
Alexander captures the essence of his subjects in shots taken during the heat of action on the track, after the race on the podium, or in the pits. Great personalties represented include Phil Hill, Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, John Surtees, Enzo Ferrari, Bruce McLaren, Peter Revson, and Carroll Shelby.
As in his previous books, Porsche Moments and Ferrari Grand Prix Moments, Alexander’s portraits are rich with evocative details of a bygone era in racing. They also extend beyond drivers and team principals to present the mechanics, crewmen, friends, and family who all contributed to the atmosphere and color of the sport.
