Michael Cooper's Jensen Days (a photographic history of Jensen)
by Nicholas Lightbown Date Added: Sunday 14 February, 2016

The late Michael Cooper’s photographic career included corporate assignments on behalf of Jensen Motors, and their relationship, established via a PR agency, bore beautiful images of beautiful products during that company’s most turbulent period – its glamourous zenith and its subsequent nadir and demise.

This delightful, beautiful publication - entirely comprising monochrome photographs (see below) – thoughtfully includes a fabric bookmark and a ‘silver’ text block finish, thereby complementing the images and lending the book something of a sense of occasion. Aesthetes with a penchant for rakish automobiles are urged to indulge themselves and purchase this magnificent publication!

Criticisms? Cooper’s images are beyond (negative) critique. However, the ‘author’/editor confesses that at least one of the photo-shoots, (partially?) reproduced here, was shot in colour. The reader, then, is inevitably left frustrated, bereft of the vibrant ‘swinging sixties’ psych-out colours that were so contemporaneously popular. In addition, the author’s captions would occasionally benefit from the ubiquitous ‘spellcheck’ – and grammar-check – facility. Finally, the author fails to recognise Andy ‘Mr Indy 500’ Granatelli (P156)

To conclude - highly recommended (especially via the – extremely helpful - Jensen Owner’s Cub website, where copies are generously discounted!)
