Bonneville in black and white


The Bonneville Salt Flats is a special place. Significant because of its geography and the history that continues to be made there by land speed racers, Bonneville’s unique conditions make for a unique racing environment and one of the most instantly recognizable venues in motorsports. When we visited the salt for Speed Week 2018, we took more than 2000 photos, and a couple hundred of them were on 35mm black and white film. It seemed appropriate to photograph the racers and their machines in a medium that was used at the event’s inception. It was fun for us, but was it worth it?
