TOP MARQUES

Every year in April, The Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo hosts the Top Marques Show. Dubbed the Worlds most exclusive car show, it's a celebration of extravagant excess, where oligarchs and tax avoiders are encouraged to part with some of their ill-gotten loot. From diamond dusted Bentleys to million dollar camper vans, every conceivable effort is made to transform standard excess into obscene frivolity. I was sent in April 2015 by Car Magazine to photograph the event and these pictures are what I saw. A strange place at the best of times, Monaco really came into it’s own at this event with the cars and peculiar objet d’arts perfectly matching the ugly excess of this odd principality.
