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Richard’s images have sat unpublished for more than 30 years and we’re proud to release these stunning limited edition prints for sale.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 James Hunt in a typical relaxed pose - as described by Richard:
“James Simon Wallis Hunt. Women loved him, men envied him, and corner marshals learned to keep him at arms length. Throughout his meteoric career, James lived life in a 65-second minute; devouring as much stimulation as possible, for in those days, tomorrow was never a certainty. With Penthouse Pet Victoria Johnson by his side, James personified the myth of the '70s F1 playboy in all its glory and pain.”
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.
