A symbol of the American Dream, a car is a metaphor built of imagination and steel, sculpted forms, the output of manufacturing lines and factories, hot sparks, working hands, physical labor, sweaty brows—the design of a dream.
Taken on the streets of Seattle in 2010-11, this collection explores feelings that cars of the 1960s and 1970s evoke in me, an immigrant, of an American past that is hard for me to get a handle on.
All images captured and edited on iPhone 3Gs.
