The Revs Institute is proud to own and make available the Rodolfo Mailander photographs. They are available on the Revs Digital Library.
From 1950 through 1955 Rodolfo Mailander, a young Italian-German photo-journalist, took 30,869 photographs at the most important racing contests in Western Europe, which he sold to publishers. His work is a tightly focused five-year chronology of Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Mercedes-Benz racing history. Many of the images are set in dramatic backdrops featuring the Alps, the Italian countryside, and historic villages. Mailander was especially attentive to the great endurance races and rallies of the early 1950 such as Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, and the Monte Carlo rallies. He also photographed the major international auto shows and salons in Turin, Geneva, Brussels and Paris.
