PORSCHE FACTORY AND MUSEUM ZUFFENHAUSEN, GERMANY JULY 9th to JULY 11th, 2012
by Photography by Martin Stafford
The original Porsche museum (in a side street by the factory in Zuffenhausen) could barely host 20 exhibits but still managed to attract 80,000 visitors year.
After years in the planning, the new Porsche Museum was opened to the public on January 31st, 2009.
In the new Porsche Museum, more than 80 cars are displayed in the Exhibition Area. Since almost all exhibition vehicles still take part in historic racing events, the rare items on show in the “Museum on Wheels” are constantly being changed. Apart from anything else, this makes repeated visits all the more fascinating for regular guests.
This book is a memento of my visit during the summer of 2012.
Up until February of 2005, my only real experience with photography was dabbling over the years with various cameras to be able to keep memories of holidays alive (namely, a Kodak disc-based [circa 1984] camera and Fuji APS-based camera [circa 1995], any other camera I used was a disposable from the local Chemist). I bought my first digital camera in February of 2005 (a Sony DSC-V3 digital compact) and soon saw everything around me from a different perspective. Within six months, I realised I wanted to take this new-found passion further and bought my first digital single lens reflex camera (a Canon EOS 350D), attending evening classes to grasp the basics of photography (composition, shutter speed, aperture). My main passion is photographing motorsport but I am keen to try all "genres" of photography (low light, portraiture, still life, wildlife, etc.) as a way of continuously learning and pushing my own personal boundaries.
