Laurent Nivalle Le Mans Classic 2012 Photos Photographs Images Pictures

If you have a few minutes, stroll through this collection of stunning Le Mans Classic photos taken by Laurent Nivalle at the 2012 event. Each one is poster-worthy.

The most amazing thing about them (in addition to the obvious artistry) is the photographs’ aged quality, which makes them look absolutely, perfectly “period.” Was there a more romantic time in racing than the ’60s through the early ’80s? The cars, at least, certainly exhibited more creativity, coming as they did in a myriad of shapes, as opposed to the computer-designed homogeneity on display nowadays on any given circuit on any given weekend. For that reason, among many others, we might well consider that time a golden age.
