SIXTIES MOTOR RACING
Photographed by Michael Cooper
With text by Paul Parker and Foreword by Nick Mason
Sixties Motor Racing isn't just about cars - it is also about people. Cooper wasn't merely an observer of the F1 scene of the day but became, as his reputation grew, part of its very fabric and a friend to the most celebrated drivers of the day.This book brings together a decade long body of his work - 390 photographs, many never before seen, from his personal collection. His pictures capture the characters and moods of the likes of Moss, Hill, Clark, Stewart and many other legendary names in a host of revealing studies, both on and off-duty.
Paul Parker's year-by-year narrative, along with over 165 lifestyle images from the sixties, puts Michael Cooper's pictures into the social, political and cultural context of what may regard as motor racing's golden era.
