Corvette C1 Fine art Photography. Hundreds of photos assembled together to recompose an artistic vision of this car. Photo credits "Corvette C1"
The Chevrolet Corvette C1 was a sports car produced from 1953 to 1962. It is the first generation of Corvette manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet, a subsidiary of General Motors. Although the style of a car may be as important to some as the car itself, carmakers only cared about it from the 1920s. It was not until 1927, when General Motors Has hired designer Harley Earl, that the style and design of an automobile have become really important: what Henry Ford did for the principles of automotive manufacturing, Harley Earl did it for car design.
And the most extravagant designs of GM's "dream cars" of the 1950s are directly attributable to Earl, whom a reporter commented at the time as being "the American psyche made visible." Harley Earl loved cars and the most successful result was the 1953 Corvette C1, unveiled to the public at the Motorama Motor Show this year.
The unique style of the photographer Amaury Dubois, produced by an artistic vision, an overactive imagination and a desire to create powerful images, reveals itself with this Corvette C1 revisited and diabolically incredible. Limited edition art photography, 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.»
