One of my favorite things in life are stories. That’s probably the main reason I love to photographs old treasures like these classic, decaying, beautiful vehicles, locations and other objects. The endless stories these ghosts can tell.
There are many times when I will think to myself, “I believe I was born about 50 years too late.” Don’t get me wrong; it’s not that I don’t appreciate the times that I do live in and the things that exist today that weren’t even thought of back in the mid-twentieth century.
But when it comes to music, photography, style, aesthetics and craftsmanship… man, there is something to be said for the way we used to do things.
When I refer to ghosts I’m speaking of the souls of these beautiful automobiles who are far past their prime. I’m also referring to all of the past drivers and passengers who drove, rode and had adventures in these cars and trucks. What did they look like; what were their clothes like; what did they see; where did they go; what all did they do in these cars…
These prints are dedicated to these ghosts and inspired by that aesthetic; that style; that pride in craftsmanship.
If you like these photos, you can see these and more in a small book I did on this project. You can check that out here: Ghosts – And the Aesthetic of the Past
