"The Racers" stems from Satterwhite's coverage of endurance racing for Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek and Life magazines between 1963 and 1973, along with personal effects from his career as an internationally acclaimed photojournalist. “I had saved all of my credentials and photo passes, so I photographed them and scattered them throughout the book to add a little more interest.”
Satterwhite captured racing greats like Jacky Ickx, Carroll Shelby and Dan Gurney. Television and movie stars such as Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and James Garner were also part of the scene.
To gain the access he needed and get the racers used to his presence, Satterwhite would usually arrive to the track a few days early during the practice sessions "to be seen enough to be forgotten."
"The Racers" uses a special “lay flat” printing technique so that two page spreads are viewed without the interruption of a gutter, along with details and stories from his time covering the races. The book is numbered and signed, and includes two 8x10" archival prints.
