Select version:


The Group C era, 1982-1993, stand for many as the golden age of endurance racing with sports prototypes.
‘ I covered the majority of the World Championship races in the period and came close to both drivers and teams. Usually my pictures ended up in magazines, newspapers and books, but after the 1990 season, I decided to throw myself over a medium that is not immediately connected with motorsport and photography. I would do a lithographic print with the new world champions: Jean-Louis Schlesser and Mauro Baldi , as well as their Mercedes-Benz C11 racecar, ‘ tells Ib Trebbien.

Ib Trebbien has through most of a long career mainly worked as an editorial photographer. As such he is probably best known for his pictures from the world of motorsport. In parallel with the general editorial work, he has also experimented with other motifs and photographic expression and sought new ways in his pictures.
‘I always seeks to adapt my photos to the context, they are made for. The image that works optimally in a printed magazine, won’t necessarily work on a website or in an art gallery. Therefore, I often work with several different versions of the same motif,’ he says.
Even though he pays tribute to the ‘Keep it simple’ rule, he don’t mind using complicated techniques in order to achieve a simplified expression in his pictures.
