Day 52: Eric Boos

Artist Statement:
I have been working on a new photographic project lately: Vehicles. Yes, I know, lots of people have taken lots of photos of cars and trucks. But Im looking for something else. For over a century we have surrounded ourselves with motor vehicles. They are ubiquitous and serve as perfect mirrors for the human experience.
It struck me that the rears of vehicles frequently function as “mobile billboards”, sending messages conscious and unconscious, about the people who drive them. Its the part of the vehicle that we see the most when were in traffic, and so its the part I photograph.
I isolate the vehicles on fields of black to focus the viewer on the vehicle and nothing else.
I also like to play with the more formal considerations of shape, color, and texture in the images: they make beautiful if unintentional, compositions.
