The Last Vintage American Car is a long series of the last “Jewels” photographed in different environments, landscapes and States. Sometimes, their presence is in contrast with something modern or industrial, sometimes they are found surrounded by graffiti or just abandoned in nature. Today we see them running around less and less and those who have chosen to restore them often modify them in unusal or creatiive ways. The ‘Car’ is an interesting symbol of our times and an icon from the beginning of the industrial era which continues to evolve. The old car models and styles have a character, personality and beauty, that their their modern, mass-produced, throw-away counter-parts don’t have.  Today a beautiful old Cadillac abandoned in a field, seems like an archeological artifact.
