Pictures and words from Le Mans and classic GP circuits. Inside The Archives brings the best of these rare images to light for the first time, revealing a fresh, often unexpected side of Alexander's art and the world of cars and racing
In 1953 Jesse Alexander made the bold decision to leave America for Europe with his young family to pursue his dream of becoming a motor racing photographer. He was one of the few Americans following the European sports-car and Formula One series, and he produced unforgettable images from one of the most glorious periods in racing. Today Alexander works on special projects and commissions, and his photography is frequently exhibited in galleries and museums. Alexander lives with his wife Nancy in Santa Barbara, California.
