Somewhere around La Puente Chimaje

From the travel diary

Today I found a brown car in a brown landscape. The scenery felt pre retouched. As if someone just left the dead vehicle on purpose where it was. Next to me was the motorway, and during the drone shot, some curious people were watching. It's always tricky focusing when being watched.

About the project?

Hardly any other industrial mass product has changed everyday life more than the motor vehicle. In many countries such as China, the United States, Japan, Germany, India and South Korea, the automotive industry is one of the most important branches of industry.

But mobility today will not be the mobility of the future. So more than ever, resource expenditure and CO2 emissions of private transportation are under criticism.

With the Aviation project, Philip traces the transience of the automobile as a consumer and cultural product. The photo series focuses on cars that have been left without owners and robbed of their intended use.
