Ferrari 328 GTS automotive photography. Hundreds of photos assembled together to create an artistic vision of this car. Photo credits "Ferrari 328 GTS"
In 1988, lovers of supercars were not spoiled for choice. The Ferrari 328 GTS, the successor to the emblematic Ferrari 308 that Magnum was driving, had only three rivals: the Lamborghini Jalpa, the Lotus Esprit and the Porsche 930 Turbo. Possibly, the De Tomaso Pantera. The 328 GTS, ultimate beauty object in 1988, is also considered one of the most reliable classic Ferrari. It is a relatively simple supercar, totally analog. Driving a Ferrari 328 GTS is physical, cerebral, without electronic safety nets.
It is a Ferrari that one could almost drive every day. Indeed, the 328 GTS is shorter and narrower than a current Ford Focus, so compact enough to feel comfortable in town, unlike its older sister Testarossa, or even the majority of supercars of the 21st century. It was also luxurious enough for its time, with air conditioning, electric windows, and even a radiocassette ... to stay comfortable on long journeys, while offering an immersive, invigorating and intoxicating driving experience.
The Ferrari 328 GTS takes an artistic form in this work of Amaury Soares which takes the public on an ever more surreal road, with as a highlight the celebration of a beauty as obvious as that hidden inside. This photography appeared on the Italian automobile magazine: Quarta Marcia
Art Photo Ferrari 328 GTS - 1988
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.
