You Are What You Drive

A while ago the Digitizing History MA class produced a website on car advertisements called You Are What You Drive. Some of the details on this project are available here.

In that vein, check out Andrew Bush’s series of photographs of people driving cars.  They are remarkably rich portraits.  The cropping of the images at the windshield makes the car windows themselves a kind of frame for the occupants inside, and avoids fetishizing the car itself.
