David Maurer: One man and his BMW 3
One man and his car – with no frills, but with rough edges. This is what the viewer gets to see in David Maurer’s picture series. The car and its driver are definitely the core of these unvarnished, straightforward pictures. What is fascinating here is the way Maurer manages to make both protagonists radiate with power and pride in such a quiet setting and with so minimalist forms. Not only the driver seems confident and calm. David also patiently got to know this exceptional setting in order to catch the perfect moment of the interplay between light and shadow in the end. This does not only make the pictures very esthetic but also a little rough and manly and the contrasts turn even the smallest details into something special. Like the story of two infamous Western heroes, the pictures of this team already cast their shadows.
