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 Soares, 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.

This hanging structure also gives the work an exceptional highlighting, thanks to a three-dimensional rendering and the feeling that the work is detached from the wall.
Whether it's a museum, an automobile exhibition venue, or a storage place for classic cars, the stretched canvas on aluminum frame adapts to all architectural constraints with custom dimensions ranging from 200 to 400cm.
It also allows for quick installation with a very high quality decorative effect thanks to thermal sublimation printing. This printing technique allows for extra-large formats, of remarkable quality.

Composed with hundreds of photos, his photographic assemblies about symbolic cars put forward the history and all the peculiarities which characterize these models. Amaury Soares 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 Soares 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.
