The Thrill of It / Milestones series
Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity
In 1912 the highway board found that nails had been placed on the road at Cronky-Y-Voddy. It was believed that they had been planted deliberately by suffragettes to damage tyres on the race machines, though this was never proved.
Rachael Clegg’s photography series Motorsport Can Be Dangerous / Risk! is one of gritty naked glamour and celebrating the pursuit of motor racing in all its thrilling, unadulterated glory. Clegg’s black and white nude images illustrate historical stories from the Nürburgring’s and TT’s combined history of 212 years (the Isle of Man TT started in 1907; the Nürburgring’s first race was in 1927).
Rachael Clegg has carved out a unique art form for herself, fusing fact and imagination to create bold, often absurd images which are almost always accompanied by text. A trained journalist with an art-school background, Clegg’s work embraces journalistic curiosity with unshackled creativity.
