- Black is beautiful? Star photographer René Staud provides the ultimate proof
- Text by Jürgen Lewandowski, who has over 20 years of experience as the automotive section editor of the Süddeutsche Zeitung and is the author of over 90 books about cars
- With essays on the relevance of the “color” black by Andrea Zagato (CEO of Zagato), Gorden Wagener (Head of Design at Mercedes), Konstantin Jacoby (Co-Founder of the Springer & Jacoby Advertising Agency) and many others
René Staud is one of the best automotive photographers in the industry, highly sought-after and extremely innovative. He has already published five successful automotive photo books with teNeues, the most recent of which is Mercedes-Benz – The Grand Cabrios & Coupés. And now René Staud is “back in black.” Like the opening riff of the famous AC/DC song, Black Beauties is predestined to delight little boys and big boys alike. In his consistently compelling images, Staud shows us a series of historic cars painted in the “color” of classical elegance and sporty power: the legendary Alfa Romeo 8C of the 1930s, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the fastest open-topped production car ever made, and even the “Goddess” Citroën DS. In addition to the gorgeous photos, there are essays by renowned authors about the significance and effect of the “color” black on automotive design. A wonderful photo volume that is anything but colorless!
