Nicolai Howalt | Car Crash Studies

August 22, 2010

This week E. highlights a series of contemporary works featuring scenes charged by a sense of what occurred there.  The first in this series, Car Crash Studies by photographer Nicolai Howalt, documents the interiors of vehicles involved in fatal collisions.  Howalt confronts the viewer with sterile depictions of aesthetically deployed airbags, revealing ambiguous tales of human trauma.

“I wanted to see if cruelness also could have some beauty in it …”
