Diego Gimenez: Highway Portraits

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Full-time jobs take up a lot of time, so how do you make room for creativity between all your various obligations and errands? Diego Gimenez solved the problem by mixing his photography habit with his morning commute – capturing drivers on the road during his hour-long drive to his web design day-job. The result is this arresting series, 122 voyeuristic glimpses through the windows of his roadside companions. “They are very private photos in a public space,” says the Argentine artist, “they are in their own world.” From the look of things that world involves a lot of yawning, nose picking, and gazing off into space, but it’s still fascinating.
