The Klemantaski Collection
This month's issue of Motor Trend Classic has a feature on a photographer named Louis Klemantaski, and references a website. The site, called The Klemantaski Collection, turns out to feature a number of different old-time racing photographers, and has prints for sale. Good stuff if you happen to like old cars and don't mind the fact that they didn't have much in the way of telephoto lenses back then. The great shot above is (aptly) captioned "Norman Wilson showing great intensity with his E.R.A. on the Mountain Circuit," and then adds, somewhat alarmingly, "Note the complete absence of any safety equipment."
