Photography: Intimate Drive-By Pictures Of People & Their Cars

Andrew Bush Driving Photographs

I write about photography a lot. I love it! Lately though, I’ve really been getting into a specific kind of photography. I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s where the pictures are spontaneous and unplanned. I like pictures of people who didn’t expect to be photographed on that day, and as a result, there is an honesty and genuinely intimate feeling to them.

One example of this is in the article I wrote yesterday entitled Photography: Squished Up Faces On The Tokyo Train. None of the people in those pictures are posed, and as sad as they are, they are still unique and artistic in a natural way. There is so much humanity and humility in those photographs.

These pictures below are similar, but there is an interesting twist. Not only did most of these people not know they were being photographed, these pictures were taken between 1989 and 1997. Can you imagine what it would be like to find one of these pictures now and realize for the first time that someone photographed you 22 years ago, and you never knew it? That would probably wig out some people, but I think it would be kinda neat.

Photographer Andrew Bush took these pictures while he drove around Los Angeles during that period of 8 years. The pictures were taken as he drove alongside these cars on the highway. His camera was mounted on the passenger window. He even published a book containing these photos called Drive. You can see more of this collection on his website. Each photograph on the site contains the exact time, date and location where it was taken. The detail he included to properly catalog these pictures is astounding. It’s a little bizarre how much you can tell about a person’s personality from seeing him or her in the driver’s seat of a car.
