Christmas Wish List…Racing Style, Koto Bolofo


Koto Bolofo is one of my favorite fashion photographers ,but he is really so much more, including documentary filmmaker. For this book Koto has recreated a automobile race circa 1940′s England with drivers, cars, pit-crew, fans and signage all true to the period. Imagine L’Uomo Vogue meets Car & Driver. Really fantastic.

    Cool book but himself Bolofo did not ‘recreate,’ or stage a vintage race, he photographed at Goodwood Revival.
    Great blog

    Goodwood is great, especially the soap box races. They show it on the Speed Channel a couple of times a year.

    Ralph Lauren’s Washington, DC store had lots of vintage racing photographs displayed at one point. They sold this book as well.
