Images by Allan de la Plante
Allan is a brilliant photographer, loved by the auto racing community and for his work with other subjects not at speed. His images not only sear into your memory, but you carry them with you as the defnitive photo of the subject, whether it may be Gilles Villeneuve, the Canadian Firefighter or an Indycar driver. Great work, wonderful wit and perspective on photography and life in general. I hope to know him and enjoy his work for a long time.

It is one thing to describe the photo you have taken; it's quite another to see it.
I'm surprised people find the words; some of your images leave me speechless.
In my humble opinion there are no words in Webster's dictionary that could
even come close to describing what I consider to be a "breathtaking piece of
Allan, you are flesh & blood proof of someone living out their dream.

"It's easy to find a good photographer and it is also easy to find a humourous speaker. But it's really difficult to find a great photographer with a great sense of humour! Allan is the one."
