About F1SCENE/ZEROBORDER: In 2004, Masakazu Miyata, unsatisfied with the articles in F1 Magazine, created a visual platform on which top-quality and high-energy photographs could be featured without the limiting nature of text written in one language. With this concept in mind, he launched F1SCENE, a graphic magazine that would not only captivate F1 fans, but also be appreciated as an art form.

At the same time, Miyata founded “Team ZEROBORDER,” a network of F1 Grand Prix photographers. The editorial team moved to Paris, France (home to F1 Grand Prix’s headquarters), where they promoted the fusion of Japanese sensibility and European culture while challenging the “barrier of publishing.” These works are filled with color, using light and shadow, capturing sports as magnificently as an opera. “As if the photograph were a painting” is their motto.
