The Fahey/Klein Gallery, Los Angeles, presents „Sleeping Cars“, an exhibition of work by contemporary German documentary photographer Gerd Ludwig. On view through March 19, 2016.
In their exhibition the Fahey/Klein Gallery features large scale photographs of resting cars at night throughout Los Angeles. Undeniably the city of cars; these vehicles are the blood in the veins of Los Angeles. Ludwig documents where these iconic Los Angeles inhabitants reside at night— tucked into driveways, proudly displayed in front of homes, glowing under street lamps, covered with tarps or simply left bare. The viewer is invited to become a voyeur, documenting alongside Ludwig where these cars go to rest at night.
Gerd Ludwig (b. 1947 Alsfeld, Germany) studied photography at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany and started working for publications such as Geo, Stern, Spiegel, Fortune, Time, and LIFE. He focuses on environmental issues and the socioeconomic changes. In 2014 “The Long Shadow of Chernobyl”, his trilingual photo book based on 20 years documenting the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident, was released by Edition Lammerhuber, “Sleeping Cars” will be published with Edition Lammerhuber in April, 2016. Gerd Ludwig lives and works in Los Angeles.
