The Car and the Camera: The Detroit School of Automotive Photography
David Lanier Lewis, Bill Rauhauser, Alan Phipps Darr, Detroit Institute of Arts, Tracey Albainy, Melanie Holcomb
Wayne State University Press, 1996 - Transportation - 96 pages
"Celebrating Detroit car photographers or "shooters" who created new ways of shooting - and seeing - automobiles from the 1950s through the 1990s, The Car and the Camera takes readers on a revealing visual journey." "This lavishly illustrated catalogue examines the technological advances in photography that have affected automotive advertisements and traces the fascinating development of the Detroit school of automotive photography, highlighting major photographers such as Walter Farynk, Dennis Gripentrog, Vern Hammarlund, Mickey McGuire, Guy Morrison, Jim Northmore, and Warren O. Winstanley, and their work." "The book also explores the ways in which the automotive industry and auto advertisements act as barometers of American culture, both mirroring and helping to shape the American spirit of the time. The great photographs showcased in The Car and the Camera are especially worth studying now, as electronic imaging seems destined to replace many of the rich traditions of automotive photography."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
