Ford Mustang 390 GT fastback
Art photographer Amaury Soares celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the film Bullitt with an exceptional work.
A well-known artist in the automotive world, photographer Amaury Soares has chosen to celebrate the 50th birthday of the film "Bullit" in his own way. Through a hundred shots, he breaks down and reconstructs the legendary Ford Mustang 390 GT fastback, the film's secondary hero, alongside Steve McQueen.
The works of Amaury Soares have found a place among car collectors and art galleries around the world, from London to Singapore. The man is passionate about beautiful mechanics; he focuses on legendary models and reinterprets them through his style and avant-garde techniques.
2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Bullitt, which birthed generations of Steve McQueen fans and automotive enthusiasts alike. In 1968, the Ford Mustang 390 GT fastback, in green, captured the attention of millions of views for over 10 minutes, propelling the car to the status of both cinematographic and automotive icon.
It was therefore natural for the artist to decide to pay homage to this iconic american racing car, placing it at the heart of his new photographic work.
