Louis Klemantaski
Louis Klemantaski is the true inheritor of Jacques-Henri Lartigue who pioneered the art of photography of moving objects in the early 1900's. Klemantaski's work, which spans the years from 1936 to 1974, represents the aesthetic pinnacle of this technique. For five years in the mid-1950’s he rode as passenger in the Mille Miglia, the most famous of all the open road races, which resulted in some of the most dramatic photography ever taken. He has authored over a dozen books of his work which has also appeared in hundreds of other publications and numerous exhibits. In the view of many experts, Louis Klemantaski, who died on June 24, 2001, was the greatest motor racing photographer of all time. There are numerous books of Klemantaski's work including Klemantaski & Ferrari, Klemantaski & Aston Martin, Salute to Ferrari and many others.
