Car Culture: By Marla Hamburg Kennedy and Howard Greenburg

 

Based on the Car Culture xexhibition curated by Marla Hamburg Kennedy for the Howard Greenberg Gallery, this selection of photographic images documents America's decades-old love affair with the automobile. From the sensual to the stark, the disarming to the disturbing, the photographs tell a visual tale of a connection between human and machine that transcends time and place. It is a tale Americans tell about themselves and their four-wheeled alter egos, precisely captured here by world-renowned photographers in what remains the most striking of mediums -- black-and-white photography, circa 1930s to 1950s.
