2007 Color photograph, 36"w x 24"h
As a child riding in the back of my parents’ car, I remember watching the glowing contrails of automobile lights as they approached and faded away. These images were shot with a camera mounted in my car and capture roughly 30 seconds of travel time. Sometimes the light dances in chaotic, fluid patterns, bringing memories of stop-and-go traffic on a grueling drive home. Sometimes the light settles into long, smooth streams, echoing the easy flow of rolling down the highway.
