Gerd Ludwig was interviewed by Christoph Stockburger of Spiegel Online about his new book Sleeping Cars published by Edition Lammerhuber. The large format photo book is being released in Europe in the middle of December and in the US at the beginning of January.
In the article, Gerd shares background information on his Sleeping Cars project and the inimitable connection the cars have to Los Angeles, his home for the last 20 years:
“When working for National Geographic, my documentary-journalistic photographs aim to touch the soul and broaden the mind. In Sleeping Cars I am searching for vehicles that spark emotions. My late night scenes of cars sitting alone on streets in the dead of night possess an inherent mysterious quality, and bring to mind a forgotten movie set of a film noir, both so intrinsic to Los Angeles.”
