Michael Kunkel started the photo agency HochZwei, a partner of IMAGO, with his colleague Jürgen Tap, and has been one of the lucky few with a spot in the ring of Formula 1 photographers. When West/Reemtsma, a client of Hoch Zwei, became the Team McLaren sponsor after Marlboro moved to Ferrari in 1997, Kunkel started photographing motorsport – and the rest is history.
Circa 180 Grands Prix later, his favorite being Monaco, along with countless trips around the world and encounters with the world’s greatest drivers, Kunkel gives us a glimpse into the competitive and rigorous world of Formula 1 photography.
