Jesse Alexander 
"A Tribute"

At the end of 2021 we lost one of the best motor racing photographers, Jesse Alexander. Jesse started taking racing photographs in the early 1950's capturing the human aspect between drivers and their machines. Even though his photos illustrated many racing articles of the 1950's and 1960's he was not a journalist but an artist more focused on unusual shots, compositions and the human factor, you could recognize Jesse's work. He concentrated mainly on Formula 1 and endurance racing.

I organized a one man show with Jesse in the 1980's in my N.Y. gallery and a two man show 2 years later with his friend Louis Klemantaski. Over the years we always carried Jesse's photographs and below is a selection that we gathered to celebrate his life. We are proud and honored to have a showing of this incredible artist at the gallery in Texas.

Rest in peace Jesse, it was an honor for me to have met you and worked with you.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year,
Jacques Vaucher
