On the day Citroen will launch the new DS this image of the iconic original was taken on a road trip to Paris in the 1980’s
In 1955 Citroen anounced the DS19 to the delight of the worlds press. Recently judged the most beautiful I was able to shoot this image on a road trip in this 1965 car for Supercar Classics magazine in the UK back in the 1980’s. This image scanned from a print where I used Ilford 3200 asa B&W film for a grain effect.
Love the tones and the grain in the picture. Interesting scene, and the car is absolutely beautiful.
Gosh don’t I look younger then.
And it took about 15 goes to get this shot right. What a tolerant lot the French were!
