Anke LUCKMANN photographed super star Michael Schumacher on his private racing machine, a red Honda Fireblade.
The interview and Anke’s images feature in the July issue of GQ – GoSee presents a private statement from the photographer, accompanied by her images.
‘Sabine Kehm, Michael’s manager, took me to his box to introduce me to him… there was a whole lot of machines and men in there… all with these funny bumps on their backs… and one of them was him then … Michael Schumacher. If I told you I wasn’t a bit nervous, I’d be lying…
Meeting Michael Schumacher and photographing him was definitely on the top of my list… a short introduction, handshake, a smile, a bit of small talk.
We had at least one thing in common that day… Michael and I… both pursuing our passions… and no, I said to him, mine certainly isn’t motorbikes!’ Anke laughs.
She continues to tell GoSee ‘oh and I also had fun… and thanks Michael. You are my hero! A great shoot with heroes…’
