Twenty years after his death at the San Marino Grand Prix, Ayrton Senna is being celebrated in a unique exhibition of images taken by one of the world's foremost F1 photographers.

'Senna: Photographs by Keith Sutton' opens at Proud Chelsea in London with a stunning array of images of the triple world champion from his beginnings in Formula Ford to his domination of F1 for 10 years until that fateful day at Imola in May 1994.

"From the moment I first photographed him...I knew I was witnessing an incredibly charismatic and talented young racing driver who would one day go on to become one of Formula One’s legends," said Keith Sutton, whose relationship with Senna began when the young Formula Ford driver approached him in 1981.

The exhibition, which also marks 30 years since the Brazilian's F1 debut, is a combined enterprise between Sutton Images and the Ayrton Senna Institute and runs from 6th March – 5th May 2014.
