Austin Healey - 1959 Fine art Photography. Hundreds of photos assembled together to create an artistic vision of this car. Photographic Creation "Austin Healey 1959" Signed & Limited Edition Print.
The Austin-Healey 3000, launched in 1959, is one of the most evocative British classics. A dream car for the time, brilliantly executed down to the last detail. Recognizable immediately to its typical grille, this model replaced the Austin-Healey 100-6 and displays the same bodywork. What makes it different are the mechanical improvements made, including its 3-liter engine, which earned the Austin-Healey 3000 the nickname "Big".
The Austin-Healey 3000, like its predecessors, has a rich history in motor racing. Carrol Hall Shelby, the future coach of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350 and Shelby GT 500, won numerous sports successes in rallies, particularly in the Alps, but also on circuits such as the Bahamas Cup in 1961 (Austin-Healey 3000 Corvette) and the Leinster Trophy in 1962. She also won many other awards in various rallies around the world. It is still used in motor racing by fans of the brand and collectors.
Art photographer Amaury Dubois pays tribute to this Austin-Healey 3000 from the 1950s and 60s by redefining its curves in an artistic composition that will undoubtedly delight all the enthusiasts of the brand. Limited edition art print, signed and numbered.

Composed with hundreds of photos, his photographic assemblies about symbolic cars put forward the history and all the peculiarities which characterize these models. Amaury Dubois does not present us a simple automobile photography but the idea that we are made of these cars, all that inspires us, as a picture that we would take in our spirit.
«The idea is to recreate a mental vision of a car. When we evoke a model of car, there is not a single image which comes to the spirit, there is a stream of images which comes into the head. I freeze this mental process in a single picture, as the result we have a photography which goes out directly of our imagination.»
The art photographies of Amaury Dubois on the theme of the automobile were revealed for the first time in 2016 during the autoshow Retromobile in Paris.
His work is exhibited in different art galleries across Europe, but some of his pieces are also part to many European and international art collections (in France Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland Switzerland Portugal Brazil USA …). His last exhibition was in Singapore.
