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!
