The Eye of Formula 1
German photojournalist Rainer W. Schlegelmilch has an innate capacity to capture extraordinary moments of intense speed. Since 1962, he has intensively documented the events surrounding the world of motor racing; and made friends with legends such as Bernie Ecclestone and Jochen Rindt. His extensive collection comprises of more than 400.000 negatives – there is a reason that he is called the “Eye of Formula 1”.
