Festival Italia 2016

Event: Festival Italia
Location: Brands Hatch, UK
Date: 14 AugustĀ 2016

What’s a photographic agency passionate about beautiful machinery to do when its local race track decides to launch a new one-day spectacular dedicated to Italian speed exotica? Yes, drooling is involved – but so is sending one of our talented and car-mad photographers to turn the day at Brands Hatch into a series of still image art. Needless to say, there was a little bit of a scramble of hands when a volunteer was called for!

Lou Johnson bagged the gig and, yes, it was as hard a job as it sounds. Glorious, evocative shapes from all ages of Italian motoring history, including F1 machines. There were several racing fixtures too, all bathed in the warmth of the summer Kentish sun. The event was a little bit of an experiment for the organiser but we’d call it a resounding success. Roll on next year (and enjoy this selected gallery in the meantime).
