The Cars in Your Life

The Cars in Your Life


Terence Macartney-Filgate (The Back-breaking Leaf) takes a light, humorous look at the automobile circa 1960, and the Great American itch for a place on the road. From a used-car lot to the public highways, slow-motion and stylized photography provide a provocative, revealing look at a people’s obsession with cars.
