Monaco F1 Circuit
Monaco is an incredible place. It has such an intense, somewhat overwhelming atmosphere. It’s also, as they say smaller than you expect... My wife I went as part of our 30th birthday celebrations and I absolutely was going to take the Nikon too.
This was such an opportunity to continue my degree dissertation project I started in 2003 on Formula One circuits (see Spa Francochamps post here). After a day or two of wandering and exploring the city, I had a good idea of where the most iconic sections of the circuit were and where I wanted to photograph them from.
The trip also coincided with the first Royal wedding, while Mrs R was tucked up in the hotel watching the Royal wedding, I went out to walk the circuit and take the photographs that you can see here.
I photographed them all on a Nikon D3X and converted them into black and white in post production. I chose to crop the images to a 11’x14’ crop as a homage to previous images I’ve taken on a medium format Mamiya RX67.
I really pleased with the sequence of images and I hope they convey the ambience and heritage of this fantastic place and motor racing circuit.
Enjoy the imagery:
