Period photoshoot: E34 M5
Photographer Henk van den Hurk of Dutch automotive publication Autovisie apparently thought at the time that it would be a good idea to take an E34 M5 to Paris and photograph it in the style of classic French street photography— that is to say, in black-and-white (film, natch, as digital would still be years away), using what was probably a 35 or 50mm prime (fixed focal length) lens, and with the City of Lights as the M Cinq‘s backdrop.
And you know what? It was. Coming across his results for the first time twenty years later is a bit of an eye-opener, as they are so completely and refreshingly unlike anything you would see in a car magazine today. We only wish he could have seen more of it. Bravo, Meneer van den Hurk.
