Lark Foord: Parts

Work / Photography

Lark Foord’s witty photographs bring suburban vehicles to life

Lark Foord photographs details, whether they be the back ends of rusty old bangers, suburban hedgerows or the textures of buildings and street furniture. His project Parts is like a visual record of the glory days of the automobile industry. There are station-wagons, hand-painted hoods depicting beach scenes and love-worn racing numbers, matte gold paint and a general air of the 70s.

The quality of light, abstract compositions and attention to detail add wit to what could, by description, be kind of a dry series. The gold hub-caps, dollar signs and bumper stickers decreeing “No Bad Days” and “Lil’ Hustler” give Parts a collective narrative and sets Lark’s work apart from straight down the line documentary photography. Nice wheels!
