About the image:

On the 4th of January 1967 the eyes of the world were drawn to a cold, deep stretch of water in the English Lake District.

Donald Campbell was the holder of eight world speed records and was the only person to set both land and water world speed records. Following in his father’s footsteps, Sir Malcolm Campbell, who had held 13 world speed records in the twenties and thirties Donald seemed determined to beat his father’s records.

He died seconds before breaking his own water speed record as his jet powered boat Bluebird K7 summersaulted and broke up as it impacted with the water.

The printing:

C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies.

C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. Read more about C-type printing HERE.
