ABOUT THE WORK
In his series Car Nudes(2012) Maarten van Schaik explores the beauty of cars. For Van Schaik, who personally does not drive, the car is a tempting and fascinating object. In his colourful photographs Van Schaik goes beyond just capturing the shape of the car, his photos transform into abstract images.
‘My images are in between realism and abstraction. I see my photo’s not as documentation but feel more connected with other disciplines like music and painting. I search for beauty in the ordinary and for the soul of lost objects which are forgotten by society. My series Car Nudes is the result of this research.’- Maarten van Schaik
