For this month’s project, Madeline Cornell of the Robert Mann Gallery in New York invites you to share your art on the theme of transportation
In today’s fast-paced world, reliable modes of transportation are essential. In one of Mike Mandel’s earliest photography series, People in Cars, we are taken back to a bustling time when the San Fernando valley was undergoing a major transformation into a commercial landscape and car culture was beginning to rev up. Mandel’s goal was to redefine the relationship between photographer and subject, as well as to harness the power of documentary.
Mandel grew up in Los Angeles, California, where he spent his formative years working on projects that interacted with the public realm and engaged in ideas of history, people and neighbourhoods.
