Spirit of the Southern Speedways
Hunter Barnes •
Photographer Hunter Barnes (born 1977) is one of the foremost documentary photographers working in America today. For this book, Barnes was given extraordinary access to document NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) culture. In order to capture the true essence of NASCAR, Barnes went on the road with the Ganassi team, spending timein the parking lot with fans for a week before the race to really get a sense of the spirit of the culture andhow it originally started―in the South, with the moonshiners building cars to outrun the revenuers.
