TT IN OPDRACHT
PHOTOGRAPHS BY SAKE ELZINGA
Published in 2011
A photojournalist from Assen can not ignore the TT. Elzinga has since 1978 photographed with what he calls “skilled interest”, the TT and everything that belongs to it : not only the races and the riders, but also the festivals in Assen and Witten, the visitors and the officials. He did that on request of regional, national and international newspapers and magazines, in which his work was published. In this way Elzinga built up a fascinating overview of over thirty years TT in his photo archive.
This book offers a selection of these photographs and, along with three interviews with coryfees from the recent TT history, this reflects the period when the TT changed from a fun event for motorsport lovers into a tightly organized media event. A book that smells of burnt rubber and beer, a book where you hear racing motorcycles on every page.
The book has been used, but it is in as new condition. On the first page however, is a sticker with the name of a previous owner. Hard cover, Dutch text.
