Finding beauty in the pieces of racetracks and riders
IIt’s just the presence or absence of light, texture, and color. And while we’ve all seen thousands of photos of racers and racetracks, the perspective offered by Italian motorsports photographer Callo Albanese takes us closer. Even though Albanese calls himself
“un fotografo ad alta velocità” or “a high-speed photographer,” there is something so serene and studied in the work shown here.
Following both Formula 1 car racing and Motogp, Albanese finds a new angle on the beauty of circuits right down to paint and asphalt texture, though he incorporates technical details of machines, shots of scuffed leathers, and motorcycles in motion to broaden the art and give the viewer a new feeling for the drama of where and what we race.
