The internationally respected daily German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, dedicated an entire page to Gerd Ludwig’s long-term project and recently published book, “Sleeping Cars” and includes a six-image selection. With over a quarter of a million copies sold daily, FAZ has the widest circulation of any German daily papers.

In Los Angeles County there are more than seven million registered vehicles. But where do all those cars go to rest? During nightly forays Gerd Ludwig noticed the many covered cars in Los Angeles. They command their own space and enjoy showing off a near architectural presence. A few years ago Gerd Ludwig started to photograph these sleeping cars that wear their covers like nightgowns; some that take afternoon naps or those which sleep in the nude – and a few lucky one that get to sleep together.
