Through the Night; Lara Platman

August 5, 2011

While at the Spa 24 Hours last week, Lara Platman shot some rather fabulous photographs during the night of crews and drivers at work within the pitlane’s tight confines.

Platman’s work – much of which is focused under night’s solemn glare – captures, not just the effort and ethic, but also the exhaustion and the passion of motorsport’s endurance paddock.
That these crews and teams work to such demands for often dim glimpses of the limelight is astonishing; to do it as a group for over 24 hours, punctuated only with occasional naps, impresses even moreso.
