‘American Trucks’ from across the pond; Need-a-new-lane blues
The book pictured above with some of its interior images is a new fine-art photo book from Swiss photographer Ulysses Frechelin, The MB&F M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland, (also with an outpost in Taipei, Taiwan) announced its first-ever book release today, attendant to news of Frechelin’s show at the gallery.
Frechelin’s clever use of close-ups on hood ornaments, chrome reflections and more draw something of a surprising portrait not just of the trucks but of the culture and way of life they represent.The photographer’s series of images came about during a chance road trip from Los Angeles to Santa Fe following a canceled job in L.A. that left him in the U.S. with two weeks’ time to fill. There’s definitely some compelling images here. You can find more via the publishing gallery’s website here, where pricing information on standard and limited-edition versions of the book are available.
