You’ve gotta love art that feels like the spirit of Steve McQueen is alive and hanging on your walls. Or maybe it’s Boss Hogg meets Reservoir Dogs. Whatever – it’s BADASS.

Drag racing is an interesting sport, and for Toronto-based documentary photographer Daniel Neuhaus, the elements of endurance, sport and human achievement have become an obsession. Similar to his series based on elite dancers from the National Ballet, Daniel gained behind-the-scenes access into the rarefied world of drag racing. Shot on location using vintage film cameras, Daniel’s images become a window into the adrenaline-fueled sub-culture of this high octane sport, and the nostalgia of the 70s street machine aesthetic.

In Daniel Neuhaus’s words, “These competitions are like a time capsule. Cars aren’t made like this anymore. They’re solid. Brightly coloured, and loud. There’s a lack of pretence about them; they are iconic and have a reference point that transcends age and class. This is a personal project for me, that suits my documentary style. These pictures are un-staged and exist in reality. This isn’t just about the sport of going fast, these cars have a specific aesthetic. They are like art pieces.”

I will be showing 5 of Daniel’s photographs at the Spring edition of the Affordable Art Fair, New York this week, and this year, I’ve made the process of coming to see them even easier.
