Aplanat Galerie : Alexander Babic - Speedweek at Bonneville Salt Lake, Utah

The Hamburg-based gallery’s latest exhibition grabs your attention with its striking colours and powerful shapes. It presents a documentation of the legendary Speedweek at Bonneville salt lake in Utah. For over 60 years, people from all over the world have been going on an annual pilgrimage to witness the live achievement of record-breaking speeds.

Alexander Babic studied and photographed people of all ages and social backgrounds, who were using this unique opportunity to flaunt their homemade vehicles on the seemingly never-ending lake. He documented a conglomeration of surreal vehicles, from streamlined motorbikes and racing cars, to turbine powered dragsters. The owners and drivers are equally as surreal as the vehicles they are so proud of.
