I love these photos. I first came across Matteo’s photos in one of my automotive magazines “Intersection”, however Matteo Ferrari is known for this type of time lapsed photography of cars and their owners—-showing the often long-term relationships with their automobiles. After owning the TT for 8 years, I am currently finding myself acknowledging the deep bonds between cars and their owners.
Here are some of the photos he has done… from his website
Had my TT for over 10 years.
What is the name of that Alfa Spider? That is the most beautiful car I have seen in a while.
corey, are you referring to the 1st photo? That is a Giuletta Sprint Speciale. I’m afraid, that may be the best angle for the car—-from other angles, it is very unique, but very very strange, IMO…i think it is a ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3236/2709049304_6ec64ee586.jpg
Great pics! I really love the idea of keeping a car forever. That is what i hope to do with my W126. It was my childhood dream, i took 3 years to find the exact car that I wanted and when I try to ship it back home, I was told by the local authorities I could not import and “old car”
Hoe to explain that my car does not get old, but turned classic?
So I decided instead that i will drive it back home, from NY to South America!
I hope to be able to take some pics like the ones you have shared in ten.. twenty, thirty years!
