From the time he first had a camera while still at school, it seemed inevitable that Keith Duerden would go on to a career in photography. Motor racing was just one of many subjects which caught his attention during this formative stage. With many previously unseen photographs, this book captures the essence of a golden age of motor racing. Featuring wellover 300 photographs of the early post-war motor racing scene, from the late 1940s, through the '50s and on into the 60s, drivers featured include the first nine Formula One World Champions, Farina, Fangio, Ascari, Hawthorn, Brabham, Phil and Graham Hill, Clark and Surtees together with many of their contemporaries such as Moss, Gonzalez, Villoresi, Taruffi, Trintignant, Behra, Salvadori, Collins, Parnell, Gerard and Schell. Amongst the Grand Prix cars represented are Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Gordini, Vanwall, Connaught, BRM, Cooper, Lotus and Brabham with sports cars including Jaguar, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lagonda and Porsche racing at Goodwood, Silverstone, Crystal Palace, Brands Hatch and Le Mans. After honing his skills on the tracks, Keith Duerden's camera took him from Coniston Water with Donald Campbell to the pioneering days in the North Sea via the Ulster motorcycle TT at Dundrod, a record London-Moscow-London road trip and on into a career in industrial photography and film making.
