Emiko Jozuka (Trinity 2006): opening of an exhibition commemorating photographs by Joe Honda, and celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Le Mans car races

Emiko Jozuka (Trinity 2006) organized a number of exhibitions commemorating in her efforts to honor the legacy of her father Joe Honda, legendary photographer, famous for his dramatic photographs of every type of motorsports and archive that charts the culture, evolution and developments of this global industry.

The exhibition is held in parralel at La Maison Franco-Japonaise and Fuji Motorsports Museum, and reflects back at the “golden age” of Le Mans, market by the final years of the dramatic Ford-Ferrari duel, until Porsche arrived on the scene with the 917.

Established in 1923 as a “Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency,” Le Mans allowed car manufacturers to prove the durability of their machines in competition. The endurance race – famous for its legacy of brutally testing drivers and their teams – has one condition for victory: the car that covers the greatest distance in 24 hours is the winner.

Joe Honda

Joe Honda, born in 1939 in Tokyo, is known as Asia’s father of motorsport photography. His archive spans the grit and glamor of motor racing’s golden years into a technological arms race funded by big business. But the cars were only ever one part of the human narrative he wanted to tell. His images — captured over close to five decades — range from the visceral to the purely functional, immortalizing the raw experiences, developments and memories of the international world of motorsport through one artist’s perspective.
