Brad Harris: World Speed Trials

Work / Photography

Photographer Brad Harris captures the World Speed Trials with thrilling flair

Sometimes a photo series is so pitch perfect the images seem like they’ve been shot on a film set – a constructed version of the subject which almost looks too good to be true. Such is the breathtaking quality of Brad Harris’ documentation of the World Speed Trials held on the Utah Salt Flats last October.

I’ve seen projects which deal with similar subject matter before but rarely, if ever, this well. There’s a crispness about the work and an epic approach to composition in many of the images which you might expect from a creative whose client list includes such famous names as HBO, Nike and Apple. But Brad also has a real sense for the moments away from the thundering noise of the drag strip; those very quiet, personal scenes which work in tandem with the more dramatic shots to provide a really well-rounded picture of an event with shedloads of photogenic potential. It takes a photographer as good as Brad though to realise that potential.
