1961 Austin Cooper S – Men’s Car Series by Laurent Nivalle

The Mini is perhaps the most iconic car’s ever to come out of the UK, the first sideways mounted engine and handles like its on rails. Laurent Nivalle my favorite photographer / designer has captured the Austin Mimi for an issue of his Men’s Cars Series and features the stunning Jacqueline and Dave along with a beautifully prepared ’61 Austin Mimi Cooper and finished in the every popular matt black and checker board roof. This is without doubt a seriously cool car and features a split dual exhaust, air intakes and a carbon fibre dash. The car was cool without trying but when you add Laurent Nivalle to the mix you get the perfect combination and a stunningly beautiful set of images. I adore the interior of the mini, carbon fibre and the most amazing dials.

I don’t know what it is about his images that I love so much, all his photo sets have a certain warmth and feeling like you know the subject. The cars are almost part of the background yet still have the presence they deserve and still manages to capture the best of ever single car photographed.
