Contemporary Melodrama

Contemporary Melodrama

Taken between 1974-1976, Langdon Clay’s (b. 1949) atmospheric images of cars in New York City document the aesthetic of an era. Despite their stylised quality, the works were created using only natural lighting, and capture the mystery and myth of icons frozen in time. The photographs are on display at Jackson Fine Art, Atlanta, until 7 July.
