Hi, Eddie -
Yes indeed, Volker's work was very special indeed. The man really had an eye and he knew how to select wonderful vantage points for his camera. Unfortunately, that story was written something like 25 years ago. At that time, I might have directed you toward his widow, who might know who now owns the rights to his photos. She has long since remarried and I have lost track of her. The one thing I might suggest is that you contact the good folks at Das Motorrad, the leading motorcycle magazine in Germany. If memory serves, Volker shot for them. They may know. I wish you luck with this quest. And I wish I could be more help. Finally, in the event that you haven't seen the Cycle World story, here's a link that will take you to it.


Best - JFT

Hi Jon, I note from an article posted on the Cycle World website by Kevin Cameron on December 18, 2019 entitled 'Volker Rauch Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing Photo Gallery' that you wrote an article in Cycle World in May 1995 in which you mentioned the circa 100,000 photos taken by Volker Rauch during his career. Can you tell me where these are archived as I would very much like to get in contact with the owner / manager of these.
Many Thanks, Eddie Youngs
