Statement

Artist's Statement:  Automotivology

Less than a century ago, the automobile was considered but a rich man’s toy. With Henry Ford’s Model T, the automobile became a common method of transportation for many families. Increased use prompted cites and towns to adapt themselves to the automobile by constructing parking lots and freeways. In the 1920s businesses were created to cater solely to motorists. The first service stations emerged as well as motels, roadside eateries and even drive-thrus. By the 1950s, however, walking had become an obsolete notion and cities were then conceived around the dominance of the automobile.

Society has gone from adapting to automobiles to being dependent on them. Because of this integration, I believe they reflect aspects of our culture. More than functional machines, they symbolize our values.

Anthony Tremblay is an artist and teacher working in photography. He is currently photographing cars in and around New York City while on sabbatical from teaching. Automobiles arose as a theme in his photographs soon after graduating from the Image Arts program at Ryerson Polytechnic University. Over the past few years he has actively traveled throughout North America to photograph how society is reflected in its automobiles. He has exhibited in North Bay and Toronto Ontario and in New York NY. He can be contacted by writing automotivologist (at) gmail (dot) com.
