Synopsis: In his group of works World of Speed Johannes Huwe, in his own inimitable style, captures images of the unique world of speed freaks in the Great Salt Lake Desert, in northern Utah. The salt lake El Mirage can be found 16 miles north of Highway 18, where all roads end. This is a deserted and surreal place in the Mojave Desert, with daytime temperatures of 45 degrees. Although seething with rattlesnakes it was still the perfect location for films like Terminator 2 and Lethal Weapon. ?Land Speed Racer? is the name given to those daring men in their home-made racing machines. This kind of racing is the last motor sports bastion still in the hands of amateurs. The participants of the races are diverse, ranging from simple car mechanics to millionaires who arrive in the desert with their truck and a whole team. Capturing the event presents a particular challenge to photographer and equipment. Heat and dust take their toll on both. ?The world as a picture? interests the artist; the gleaming chrome surfaces of cars, racing in the salt desert, or the aesthetics of New York daily life. His style ranges from documentary accuracy to surreal, constructed scenes. The pictures of ?World of speed? were shoot with a medium format Hasselblad camera.

Book Description Lüdenscheid. seltmann + söhne., 2014. 1. Auflage.. 45, (2) Seiten. Mit zahlreichen ganzseitigen u. farbigen Fotografien. Farbig illustrierter OKart.-Einband. (Geringe Lagerspuren). 30x30 cm * Zweisprachig - Texte in Deutsch und Englisch. In German and English. In seiner Werkgruppe World of Speed zeigt Johannes Huwe mit seinen Bildern in fast phantastischer Weise die eigene Welt der Geschwindigkeitsfanatiker auf dem Großen Salzsee in Kalifornien. Der Salzsee El Mirage ist 16 Meilen nördlich vom Highway 18, dort wo alle Straßen enden. Ein verlassener und unwirklicher Ort in der Mojave Wüste mit Tagestemperaturen um die 45 Grad und durchschnittlich 150 mm Niederschlag pro Jahr. Es wimmelt von Klapperschlangen, Filme wie Terminator 2 oder Lethal Weapon wurden hier gedreht. Stars wie Madonna oder U2 haben diese skurrile Gegend für ihre Musikvideos als Kulisse genutzt. Land Speed Racer werden sie genannt, die meist tollkühnen Männern in ihren selbstgebauten Rennwagen. Sie haben nur die Stop-Uhr und die Ziellinie vor Augen, mit dem immer gleichen Ziel, im nächsten Rennen einen neuen Geschwindigkeitsrekord aufzustellen. Land Speed Racer ist die letzte Motor Sport Bastion, die noch in der Hand von Amateuren ist. Die Teilnehmer der Rennen sind bunt gemischt von einfachen Automechanikern bis hin zu Millionären die mit einem ganzen Team und Truck in der Wüste anreisen. Legenden wie Gene Winfield, der diverse Fahrzeuge für Hollywood Filme wie Star Trek, Blade Runner oder Batman gebaut hat, nehmen an den Rennen teil. Neben dem Erreichen einer neuen Bestzeit ist ein weiteres Ziel die Mitgliedschaft im 200 Mile Club oder sogar 300 Mile Club. Deren stolze Mitglieder sind oft von weitem durch Aufschrift 200 Mile Club Member auf den T-Shirts zu erkennen. Die T-Shirts gibt es jedoch nur für qualifizierte Land Speed Racer gegen Vorlage des Clubausweises. Das Fotografien der Veranstaltung stellt eine besondere Herausforderung an den Fotografen und die Technik dar. Die Hitze und Staub machen der Ausrüstung stark zu schaffen. Noch schwieriger ist es, die Fahrer mit ihren Fahrzeugen nach dem Rennen zu portraitieren. Gebremst wird aufgrund des sandigen Untergrundes mit Bremsfallschirm. An welcher Stelle genau der Rennwagen in der Wüste dann zum Stehen kommt, bedarf Einiges an Erfahrungswerten. Dem Fotograf bleibt dann nur wenig Zeit mit seinem untermotorisierten Mietwagen die Piloten und ihre Fahrzeuge zu erreichen. Dort angekommen, hat man nur ein sehr kleines Zeitfenster zum Portraitieren, da innerhalb weniger Momente ein Securityfahrzeug damit beginnt, die Unversehrtheit des Fahrers und Fahrzeuges zu überprüfen. Die Bilder der Serie World of Speed wurden mit einer Mittelformat Hasselblad Kamera aufgenommen. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1100. Bookseller Inventory # 129071
