This new collection has uniquely captured the esthetics of vintage and modern trains, planes, automobiles and more. The exhibit, that can be viewed at http://www.barryepstein.com.au, complements other themes for photographer Barry Epstein including landscape, architecture and portraits.
Transport devices are often works of art in their own right and adding years of exposure to sunlight, UV radiation, wind and water, they reveal colorful weather-beaten designs and textures. Some of this collection graphically illustrate a preserved past - signs of their times - that stimulates memories and arouse curiosity. Many photographs of vintage transportation devices capture the asperity and ageing of elements that can be best described through a traditional Japanese Wabi-sabi esthetic. This concept acknowledges three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished and nothing is perfect (the word sabi means withered). Other photographs in the compilation displays intriguing and modern forms of transportation that clearly captures the exact moment and place to spark interest.
Works in this transportation focused collection have been shot in remote and urban locations around the world including China, Russia, USA, Alaska, Europe, Australia and more.
