The discovery in Facebook by contemporary Bantam Racing Club members that I am still around, at least 2 generations after my time back in the 'fifties, was quite a shock. It triggered this book, which has enabled me to lay a few ghosts, tell some background stories and to open my store of data that is probably not too "old hat" by today's technology standards. Most of all, it gave me the chance to pay homage to the man who rode my Todd-BSA into the racing history books: Fred Launchbury

About the Author

George E. Todd
GeorgeTodd Hochstadt, Bavaria, Germany

Born in 1925 in Grimsby, England I soon showed artistic aptitude and won a scholarship to study graphic design – studies disrupted by the war, and service in Royal Air Force. After the war I worked on missiles and the Skylark research rocket. In 1972 I was offered a job in the German Aerospace Research Organization, the NASA of Germany. The change of life-style in Bavaria triggered me to take photography seriously, making close-ups of Alpine flowers for my wife. This developed into a fascination for detail and still life, as well as landscapes, making images featured in my exhibitions and several books. We made many journeys around the Greek islands, France, Italy, Spain & Portugal, shooting literally acres of film. I have often said that if a motif presents itself suddenly ‘out of the blue’, I see it intuitively as a graphic image or some abstract design – a reaction difficult to describe and almost impossible to teach others. I photograph anything that stands or moves, or moves me.
