Sleeping Cars is een van de allertofste accounts op Instagram

Niets is eenzamer dan een prachtige bolide die ‘s nachts aan tukken is. Soms met een groot zeil eroverheen, maar meestal staan ze koud langs de kant van de straat. In Los Angeles zijn er zo’n  7 miljoen auto’s. Overdag moeten deze wagens hard werken, maar ‘s nachts mogen ze uitrusten. Fotograaf Gerd Ludwig van National Geographic legde deze auto’s vast op de meest gevoelige plaat. Kijk en geniet. 

Gerd maakte bijzondere foto’s van de rustende auto’s onder straatlantaarns, in garages en langs de kant van de straat. Er is zelfs een boek door hem uitgebracht waarin je de collectie kunt bekijken. Gelukkig bestaat er in deze moderne wereld ook nog zoiets als Instagram. Zet een vette ambient plaat voor de totale beleving.

Photo by @gerdludwig While in Long Beach to photograph @simonpagenaud‘s IndyCar (see previous post), I stayed overnight on The Queen Mary, a hotel since 1972. In front of it, I came across a sleeping car in its tightly fitted robe. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #TheQueenMary #LongBeach #SleepingCarsbook

Photo by @gerdludwig / @sleepingcars Two cars rest side by side in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. As I have written in the introduction to my book about the Sleeping Cars, “With voyeuristic pleasure, I have spied on them in their nightgowns, I’ve watched some sleep in the nude; …and a few lucky ones get to sleep together.” @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #SleepingCars #SleepingCarsBook #car #california #californiacars

Photo by @GerdLudwig / @sleepingcars. For several nights I had observed this truck being parked at various locations in West Hollywood, but none of them seemed ideal for a great photograph. Then, one night, when I found it with this mysterious red light in the background… This photograph is included in my new, large-format photo book “Sleeping Cars” which is now in bookstores in Europe, with the US release to follow in mid-February. @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative @theimagereview #SleepingCars #SleepingCarsBook #car #truck #pickup #LosAngeles #night

Photo by @GerdLudwig. Over many years now, I have been photographing a project called “Sleeping Cars,” which was first published in National Geographic Magazine as a Work in Progress. I stumbled on this car one misty morning in the Hollywood Hills, near my home in LA. @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative @theimagereview #SleepingCars #SleepingCarsBook #car #LosAngeles #HollywoodHills #California #carlovers #carlover #carculture #cars #mood #mist
