Fine art Photography of a Ford Thunderbird / T-Bird. Hundreds of photos assembled together to create an artistic vision. Photo credits "Ford Thunderbird / T-Bird"
Unlike today, vehicle choices were quite reduced 50 years ago when the Ford Thunderbird was launched. There were sedans, coupes, breaks and convertibles, but a Ford remained a Ford: simple variations around a common design. However, with the first generation of T-Birds in the 1950s, Ford introduced the concept of a sporty, two-seater luxury car with a V8 and stylish styling. But the real take-off of the Ford T-Bird was in 1958, when it became larger and heavier (almost 2 tons), with 4 seats and a polyhedral shape that earned it its nickname "Square Birds" .
The Thunderbird Convertible of 1965, the fourth generation of T-Bird, had an expressive style and brilliantly represented this era, combining the flamboyance of space and a more formal side with its convertible top. Sitting on a 2.88m wheelbase, the size of this T-Bird suits our modern eye quite well. Considered by many to be a parade car, she was the "ultimate" of that period.
The artist photographer Amaury Soares has endeavored to give a second life to the Ford T-Bird 1965, by redrawing certain details, sublimating what was already majestic, in an atypical and creative work. This photo is available in yellow korner Gallery.
Art Photo Ford Thunderbird / T-Bird 1965
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.
