Rising London-based photographer Ollie Trenchard has officially announced the launch of his latest project, which dissects the roaring car scenes of Caribbean islands. Trenchard heads to Barbados’ sun-filled beaches to fill the pages of Drifting In Paradise while paying tribute to his Bajan and UK roots.

The growing rally culture in Barbados vibrates through Trenchard’s striking photographs, capturing the nation’s love for car racing and automotive history. Trenchard recalls his early childhood, where he forged a deep connection to motorsports and traveled to Barbados to reignite his love for street racing.

Drifting In Paradise honors Barbados’ beloved car enthusiasts, sitting down with them at local car clubs and group events. He exhibits a diverse range of vintage and modern cars and tells the story of cherished models, including the Japanese Nissan Skyline and Subaru Impreza. The hardcover book is designed in orange and blue tones, while compelling spreads are submerged in racing chronicles.

Take a look inside Ollie Trenchard’s Drifting In Paradise photography book above, and purchase your copy at select bookstores and online retailers worldwide. Trenchard will hold an exclusive exhibition in London, February 23-25, at 4 Garden Walk, EC2A 3EQ.
