Car Shows 2009-2012
My undergraduate thesis in 1969 at the RI School of Design was photographs I'd made in a junkyard south of Providence, RI. I've been photographing cars on and off ever since.
In more recent years I have gone to car shows, the small ones in a mall parking lot late on a summer afternoon and big ones including the Summer Nationals in Worcester, Ma and the Yuma Car show in Arizona.
I like the forms as sulpture, the colors and how light moves a cross the shapes. Although I've never been a people photographer sometimes there are things happening that are just too good to pass up. These are few and far between but seem like gifts when they do happen. There are a few in this series.
These images here are not tightly sequenced nor is the print portfolio. We published some of these pictures in the on-demand book called A Year..
