Autophoto

How cars have shaped up our landscape, redefined man’s relationship to space and time, as well as influenc­ed the vision of a large number of artists?

In this book, Xavier Barral and Philippe Séclier examine the relationship between photography and the automobile since their inception. This thematic road trip organized in series brings together over 500 photographs by 90 historic and contemporary artists who have captured the automobile, and transformed this popu­lar accessible object through their passionate and creative vision.

The publication features both iconic and new series by Brassaï, William Eggleston to Malick Sidibé, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Justine Kurland and Alejandro Cartagena. As one questions today the role of automobile within our society, Autophoto offers an historic view, both critical and filled with humor, on this symbol of dream and freedom of the 20th century.
