Richard Kelley started out his career as a fully accredited F1 photographer in 1972 at the United States Grand Prix. He quickly adopted his characteristic ‘fly on the wall’ style of photography – getting as close as he could to the moments, without influencing the emotion or drama of the moment. He witnessed and recorded hidden moments that became pivotal incidents in Grand Prix history.
Richard’s images have sat unpublished for more than 30 years and we’re proud to release these stunning limited edition prints for sale.
This photo captures Ickx - as described by Richard:
“Jacky Ickx waits in the pelting rain as his Ferrari 312 B2's engine heat-soaks. Known as a “regenmeister", he serenely accepted the fundamental test of a Formula 1 driver; when the flag drops, he will use his natural driving talent alone, rather than engineering aides, to take on the best drivers in the world under the most difficult conditions.”
The black & white photo is professionally printed and framed with a black frame and white mount and features a hand-written limited edition number.
The framed print measures 55cm x 75cm and is protected with museum-grade perspex 'artscreen' instead of glass - you won't be able to tell the difference when it's hanging on your wall.
Limited edition of 50 prints.
