F1 Grand Prix Photos By Joshua Paul

Photography and the sport of vehicle racing have traversed a strange parallel path. And maybe that’s because technology has progressed at roughly the same speed for both. But we still see classic car races all the time, so we wonder why people don’t shoot modern races with older cameras? As it turns out, there’s someone who does.

If you’re looking at these old grainy photos and wondering why all the people are dressed in modern clothes and the cars in them look sleek and high-tech, it’s because racing photographer Joshua Paul shot them sometime between 2013 and now. He achieved this beautiful old look not through photo manipulation, but rather through the use of a 1913 Graflex 4×5 view camera. For those of you keeping score, that’s a film camera that’s 104-years-old. And while Mr. Paul can’t shoot even a fraction of the number of photos as a modern camera (a roll for the Graflex only holds 20 shots), every single shot he does take has a character and depth to it that we posit would be extremely difficult to otherwise replicate.

Over the course of the last four years, Joshua Paul has been compiling a collection of these photos and more – all inspired by and featuring formula one racing. His company, called Lollipop Grand Prix Media, now publishes his work in print in a magazine of the same name, which has been recognized for excellence in design by the Society of Publication Designers. If you want to get your hands on more work like this, you can find it on the brand’s website or by following their Instagram.
