Although it’s fur­nished en­tirely by pho­tos taken at race­tracks, this is a book about emo­tion. Columbo’s lens fol­lowed Ayr­ton Senna’s ca­reer in­ti­mately, fo­cus­ing on fa­cial ex­pres­sions, ges­tures and in­ter­ac­tions with friends, foes and col­leagues as well as on-track ac­tion.

Com­bined with Gior­gio Ter­ruzzi’s neatly-judged cap­tions, the book is in ef­fect a biography with few words, Some­thing you move through with the slow, con­sid­ered de­lib­er­a­tion of an art ex­hi­bi­tion at a gallery – mo­tor sport pho­tog­ra­phy at its best.
