Exclusive images from the Golden Age of Formula One

Big hair, moustaches, 22 car pile-ups, Formula 1 has had it all, and photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch has been there to document it. His archive of over 350,000 images dating back to the early 1960s has captured the evolution of Formula 1 from its post-war roots to the multi-billion pound industry it has become today. We’ve obtained some never-before-seen shots from the forthcoming exhibition of Schlegelmilch’s work, at Proud Gallery in Camden.

The Golden Age of Formula 1 exhibition opens on September 16 and closes on October 24 at Proud Camden.
