Film Photography for Cars and Bikes. Analogue Eye Candy
The glossy car magazines are awash with too perfect images. The super hi-def imagery that accompanies every automotive launch, editorial story, and TV slot leaves too little mystery. Digital renderings make even the most workaday motors seem supremely slick, technologically exact issues – as if conceived from the circuit boards of robots rather than the hearts and minds of men.
So, when we stumble upon imagery like this, which is conceived by the quickly-disappearing method of light falling on film and then its transference to paper (before being digitally scanned, pixelated and uploaded on the wide world web of course) – we are stopped in our tracks.
Take some time and look at these pictures. They are like still from an automotive dream. Stay tuned for more analogue galleries.
