Bernhard Fuchs: Autos
by Bernhard Fuchs
Publisher's Description
Alone on dirt roads, at city curbs and in vast parking lots, the subjects of Bernard Fuchs's color portraits wait and rust. He writes of them, 'On my bicycle tours, time and again, I saw passenger cars, buses and trucks that just stood around. I think my first reaction was to look for the absent owners. Since I hardly ever saw anyone, I stayed alone with the situation, and a relationship to these vehicles began to develop as I would not have expected it. The cars in the landscape had an impact on me, similar to the impact of actors on a stage, and I began to collect their wit and their tragedy.' Fuchs gives the 40 vehicles photographed here-an Opel, a Volvo, a Skoda, Fiat, Mercedes, Ford, Mazda, VW bus-a moment in the spotlight and a good-sized stage at almost 12 x 17 inches.
