Winner at the German ADAC Autobuchpreis 2016 in the category Special Awards
Nowhere else have so many land speed records been set as at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. Each year, devoted gearheads and adrenaline junkies from around the world gather to add their names to the hall of fame with their hot rods, roadsters, motorcycles, and belly tankers. They are
shown up close and personal as hardly ever seen before. Alexandra Lier visited the famous Speed Week at Bonneville Salt Flats, for the first time in 1999. Immediately, a lasting obsession with fast cars, hot rods, and customs was born. She has returned annually ever since, taking photographs, honing her own skills at burning rubber with the best of them, and becoming a member of the »salt community« herself. Alexandra Lier is an award-winning art director and photographer. Her book Speedseekers, documenting everything from classic hot rodding, the Salt Flats, suede, Rat Rods, customs, choppers and drag racing, was published 2008.
