Who We Are

Larry Thorson has been photographing the world since before you were born. He has always been a sucker for a sweet looking car. He likes to catch them out in the "wild." Failing that, he tries to capture the emotion and gravitas (or absurdity) of a car when it's on display. Metro Phoenix is ideal for both, as the survivor car and collector car auction center of the world. Likewise, he is always on the lookout for an intriguing street scene. Rather than elaborate staging, he tries to capture the spontaneous ephemeral moments that are otherwise lost in a blink. His work is on display across the web.

Junk = Trunk

As a heterosexual man, I love a nice plump ass.  As a car guy, i like Ferrari.  As someone who came of age during the “malaise era” of cars, I despise fake ornamentation – tape stripes, fake scoops, pointless, drag-creating spoilers.

So what the fuck, Ferrari?

Dat Ass?  Unnecessarily HUGE.

The trunklid? Too huge, hiding overly complicated mechanicals.

The real bitch?  The fake ass taillights.  Do you think they’re brake lights? EEEEERRRRR  They’re not.  Those are in the bumper, next to the side marker/reflectors. (There are separate rear reflectors in the fake diffuser.)

Ferrari Geniuses: But what if someone needs to see the brake lights while the roof is in motion and the decklid raised.

The rest of the world:  You have 3D taillights that could be visible from space.  Use them, why doncha’?
