Buick, art photography. Hundreds of photos assembled between them to recompose an artistic vision of this old classic car. Photographic creation " Buick II " Limited & signed art edition
While Buick, now owned by General Motors, is one of the oldest automotive brands in the United States, it is also known for pioneering technological innovation. By the early 1920s, for example, Buick was the first manufacturer to equip its 4-wheel brakes. In the 1930s, Buick became immensely popular with its advanced 8-cylinder engines, but also with the introduction of the first rear turn signals. Twenty years later, Buick equips the first American V6 engine on mainstream cars.
Buick has always been able to respond to the continuous evolution of the sector. In the 1980s, the manufacturer began to offer more compact sedans and a decade later, it launched more racy and muscular models like the Buick Regal Grand National and the luxury Reatta coupe coupe, while continuing to massively produce Luxury sedans for an older audience. Today, with the European influences he is now familiar with, Buick offers more entertaining cars with a more contemporary style like the Buick Verano, and totally breathtaking concept cars, like the 2016 Concept Riviera.
Amaury Dubois loves beautiful cars, whatever the brand. It's all about emotion.
The artist here offers his vision of a Buick from the 1950s, one of those mythical cars that can still be seen pacing the waterfront of Havana, or secretly guarded in the garage of a nostalgic collector. Limited edition art photography, numbered and signed by Amaury Dubois.

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.
