Aesthetics are at the core of hot rodding. And nothing captures the visual essence of the hot rod like Peter Vincent's photography. In brilliant color and fully-saturated black-and-white photography, Vincent will capture America's most essential hot rods, hot rodders, and racers in dramatic settings such as the Bonneville Salt Flats and California's dry lakes - the places from which hot rodders have always drawn inspiration. The majority of the book's photographs will get the same treatment: each will have its own page, surrounded by white space and properly cropped and framed to show off Vincent's photographic artistry. Woven throughout the book, Vincent will tell the story of hot rodding through interviews with the originators of the culture, land speed racers, and the new generation of hot rodders who are keeping alive the aesthetic sensibility of hot rodding.About the AuthorFrom the salt flats of Bonneville to the endless variety of dry lakes and drag strips that dot the American landscape, photographer Peter Vincent magnificently reveals the pure artistry of the cars themselves. Inspired by early associations with Ansel Adams and others, Peter's amazing images have appeared in popular enthusiast publications since the 1980s, including Rodder's Journal, Street Rodder magazine, Hop Up, and in his best-selling book Hot Rod, An American Original in 2001. In addition, Peter's works have been exhibited in museums and galleries from New York to San Francisco. Vincent lives in Moscow, Idaho.

About the Author:

Peter Vincent discovered photography by purchasing a Popular Photography Annual in the mid-1960s that included Adams, Weston, White, Steiglitz, Strand, and many more. He knew at that moment that he would do photographic work professionally, and he went on to take workshops with Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, Morley Baer and others. But Vincent also grew up as a gearhead, buying his first car at 15 and learning how to fix, customize, and personalize automobiles. His love for visual work, minimalism, and transportation has found its way into Motorbooks titles Hot Rod Garages (2009) and Dream Garages (2006). Official Website: www.petervincentphotographer.com
