my favourite thing about the karoo isn’t the wide open spaces or the lack of people or the lamb or the way it feels in winter (though all those are unimaginably good) – but the buildings. oh, those little houses.
“classic cars photographed in suburban neighborhoods. the series came about when i started to realize how many of these scenes reminded me of the era and places where i grew up as a child. eventually, finding and photographing these scenes became somewhat of an obsession.”
these photos are from Life magazine’s archives: Teenage Music – The Beachboys, The Righteous Brothers, ABC’s “Shindig” … i’m assuming it’s one of those american tv specials from the late fifties / early sixties where a bunch of kids would gather in a studio & dance wildly to a hip band (think Grease). oh yes, it looks like a ton of fun.
