Somewhere around Odeceixe

From the travel diary.

A wild scenery today. The car I found was just left nowhere. There was absolutely nothing: no street, no people, no village. I wonder how a destroyed car like this can get there and what happened. Probably better don't wanna know it, though.

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.
