Alexander Blake , Beyond The Lens: British Automotive Culture

Alexander Blake’s work focuses on the automotive culture which is extremely prominent within Great Britain in a reportage style.

The inspiration for this project came from his lifelong passion for cars as well as the fascination and respect he has for the individuals which play a vital part within this culture. Blake’s aim with this work is to celebrate the characters which make up this particular world whilst simultaneously documenting what he also believes is perhaps going to become a “dying breed” within the next few years due to continuously growing concerns around global warming.

Though Alexander tends to primarily photograph well known events such as Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage and Goodwood’s iconic Festival of Speed, he does wish to document individual characters who wish to share their automotive stories and passion.
