In the wake of World War II, a golden age of motor sports emerged in Europe, setting competing countries against each other on the racetrack, not the battlefield. A young photographer at the time, Jesse Alexander followed the continental racing scene for a decade and captured on film the adventure, glamour, and innocence of this influential period in racing. Jesse's photographs have been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in the United States, including the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Akron Art Museum, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. His corporate clients include Volkswagen of America, Daimler Chrysler, the Ford Motor Company and General Motors. Jesse Alexander has remained one of the most acclaimed and commercially successful racing car photographers in the history of the sport.
