Falling in Love Again

Most UK chaps of a certain age will recognise this image, from the August 1976 issue of Bike magazine. It was the opening page of their first test of the Moto Guzzi Le Mans, headed “Falling in love again “ - and didn’t we just fall in love. Taken by Bob Carlos Clarke, the great man retouched the negative by hand to produce this ethereal image. It’s the finest example of his unique attempts to photograph motorcycles as art, rather than the “look at me” riding shots that are still considered to be what readers want to see. Oh, and they’re cheap to produce. Maybe the current lockdowns will encourage editors to look for more original imagery, but sadly I doubt it. We ran a few more examples of Bob Carlos Clarke’s work in issue 1 of Benzina
