‘Vintage Car, San Diego’ is a Giclée print by contemporary photographer David Pexton. Printed onto 300gsm Minuet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
British-born, and now Brooklyn-based, contemporary photographer David Pexton is a master of the lens. His ardent passion for the city that never sleeps is infectious: roaming the metropolis, Pexton is able to capture every tiny detail of the urban space, or express the character of a passer-by in even the smallest gestural expression.
With an exceptional eye for colour and composition, Pexton’s work - which incorporates 35mm, Medium Format and Instant film - really packs a punch.
‘Vintage Car, San Diego’ is suffused with retro style: a 1950s, salmon-pink, car poises on a San Diego road. The sky is soft blue - this is either a dawning day or early sunset - while all around the houses are trailed flowers and foliage, in rich greens and pinks, for an attention to colour and tonality that makes for a truly iconic image.
