Gallery — Brooklands Museum, 2011

The British motorsport venue known as Brooklands was built in Weybridge, Surrey in 1907. It included the world’s first dedicated racetrack and an early airfield, and it was the host of many car, motorcycle and bicycle races until WWII. During and after the war, it became a major center for aircraft design, construction and flight testing. Since 1987 the Brooklands Museum has dominated the property, with vintage military and civilian aircraft (including a Concorde and other airliners), cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, and bicycles.

These photos are not so much documents of the exhibits as they are explorations of color, light and form. They’re best viewed at full size (some have a lot of detail). Each one will open in a new window when you click the version displayed in this post.
