Volvo Cars

We commissioned photographer David Ryle to undertake this adventure with us. David has a unique eye for photographing cars. He is able to capture images which single out and highlight his subjects and yet feel somewhat documentary at the same time. I wanted to distance myself from classic automotive photography and David did an amazing job to find the right balance between the "road trip" character I was after and still meeting the requirements and guidelines of the client in regards to the presentation of their product.

The artworks had to be coordinated in advance with us as well, so I provided each one of the artists with some guidance in regards to the brand, still leaving enough space for their individual interpretation. Metulczki (left) in Leipzig for example, worked with a media mix of photography and oil painting. His piece "Ladenfront" (engl.: shop window) represents the former German Democratic Republic, while the future, in form of the XC60, is reflected in the shop window. The three-dimensional artwork of the astronaut hovering over a city and the car (right), was created by Lugano based street artists Nevercrew
