Jory Hull – My Mind Is Racing
Even though he grew up as a typical car-obsessed American kid, Jory Hull detours from his familiarity and explores an outsider’s view of the primitive, fascinating elegance of racing vehicles from a bygone era. The artist frames these machines as the colorful, handmade tools that they are, contrasting the idealised objects that appear in most automotive photography, often abstracting their details into almost pure graphic compositions. This series of photographs, taken over the course of a decade, capture the surfaces and inner workings of these objects at rest, revealing the unusual details of these instruments designed for fierce competition, created to live at high speed. The quiet beauty of these machines at rest, one imagines the sights and sounds of them at full fury.
