If there’s one photographer whose pictures of cars approach the lofty heights of art, it’s Richard Morris.
His subject matter—ultra-rare Euro exotics—certainly help, but it’s not like his are the only photos of Pagani Zondas in existence. What’s beautiful about Morris’s work is his relentless pushing of envelopes.
In every single one of his published photos, you can see and feel long hours of thinking and planning executed with great taste. Like his photo of a Lamborghini Murciélago taken at the humongous airship shed in Cardington, Bedfordshire.
Some of his stuff is just plain audacious. He has a photo of both a Porsche Carrera GT and a Koenigsegg which are deviously not in focus yet both work—and are some of the more memorable pictures you’ll ever see of Carrera GT’s and Koenigseggs.
Morris uses strange equipment to capture his images: Leica rangefinder cameras with manual focus lenses, some of which give you razor-thin depths of field. Not a walk in the park when you try to fit a speeding Lotus Exige in there while hanging out of a chase car.
