Item description for Speed Kings by Dirk Behlau...
Drag racing is a down-to-earth form of motor sport that is both accessible and affordable. It fascinates an ever-growing community of fans from around the world.
This has partly to do with the sport itself, but certainly also with drag racing's very individual brand of aesthetics when it comes to the cars and the people who drive, repair and admire them. Drag racing is a mix of uproariously loud, primordial displays of power and high-tech; its drivers love the sport but flirt openly with destruction and putting their lives in danger.
Speed Kings presents photographs by Dirk Behlau that skillfully capture the adrenalin-fuelled atmosphere of suspense on and alongside the track, as well as the eroticism of the machines and the people who give their lives for a few seconds of the ultimate kick.

Review from Street Magazine, Issue 4/2007: You surely remember this great US-Car photographer Dirk Behlau aka Pixeleye from our artist profile in the last issue. His photos are just truly amazing and outstanding! It was just a matter of time when he would come around the corner with something like this. Now his first photobook is out on the market...and what can i say: Speed Kings is an absolute "must-have" book for Greasers, Drag Racing Fans and every Octane Maniac!
