Mercury Monterey Fine art Photography. Hundreds of photos assembled together to recompose an artistic vision of this car. Photographic creation "Mercury" Signed & Limited Edition Print.
In the Hollywood universe, there is probably no other legend more mysterious and memorable in the 1950s than James Dean. In almost all his films, cars were part of his role. Film fans, and moreover, mythical cars, remember the majestic curves of the Mercury Monterey in the movie "Rebel Without a Cause". It is undeniable that the factor "James Dean" played a crucial role in the recognition of this automobile as a car intrinsically linked to Hollywood. Added to this, many other appearances, notably in "Cobra" with Sylvester Stallone in 1986.
The elegant Mercury Monterey high-end 2-door coupe from 1951 is part of the Mercury Eight series. It is a more aesthetic than mechanical evolution of the latter, with better internal fabrics, solid rims, anodized fittings, chromes protruding from the front grille, and so on. It is a model particularly sought after by collectors of "customized" vehicles.
The Mercury have always been prestigious automobiles based on Ford with specific details and finishes. It is these unique details that allowed Amaury Soares to imagine this outstanding 1951 Mercury Monterey and propose a vision that celebrates its remarkable and inspiring beauty. Limited edition art photography, numbered and signed by Amaury Soares.

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.
