On the side of my main project [ www.rearwindow.co.nz ], I had fun photographing cars in a slightly different way.
Inspired by movies such as Rebel Without a Cause, Bullitt, Two-Lane Blacktop, American Graffiti, Blues Brothers, Vanishing point etc.;
“East of Bullitt” is an attempt to recreate the ambiance, the “mood” of American movies where cars are preeminent.
The idea is to recreate, find, the ‘feel’ of these movies without using actors, actions, pursuits.
To search something as immaterial as a “mood” I am using only car details and light.
Very happy to see my work published in the 9th anniversary issue of Fraction magazine this month.
