Fine art Photography of the Corvette C1. Hundreds of photos assembled together to create an artistic vision. Photo credits "Corvette C1 III"
Ask any amateur of American sports cars the two models that define the genre. There is little doubt that the two names that would immediately come to mind would be Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Corvette. The Corvettes were launched in 1953, before the arrival of the Mustang in 1964. They were the most audacious creation of their time. Even though the chassis of a Corvette was derived from a standard Chevrolet sedan, its spectacularly shaped fiberglass body was a bold move for the world's largest automotive company at the time, General Motors, Its wide range of family, and Cadillac luxury cars.
The C1s are the oldest school corvettes par excellence and are easily identifiable by their exposed headlights, their rounded curves, and their very low seat. From 1953 to 1962, the Chevrolet Corvette C1 gave American athletes a new dimension and became (and still is) indissociable with the American image of the 1950s and 1960s. The C1 has undergone many changes, mainly cosmetic. However, this small roadster which welcomed in 1953 a 3.9-liter Chevrolet 6-cylinder in-line engine, ended his career in 1962 with a 5.4-liter V8 developing 360 hp.
The ability of Amaury Soares, an art photographer, to make powerful, captivating and dynamic images, leads to a totally unique and exciting Chevrolet Corvette C1 approach that reveals the details of an underlying off- standard. 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 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.
