My interest in cars has very little to do with style, performance or transportation. It has everything to do with their highly polished, colorful and finely sculpted surfaces.
It is well known that color can so dominate the experience of a photograph that it becomes the subject. That’s fine and appropriate. But in making the selections for this book I applied two criteria: the image had to be about the dance, the beautiful and fascinating interaction between light and surface, and it had to evoke in me a sense of the subject’s evolutionary past. The images had to both reflect and evoke reflection.
