Quotes from the news wire:
I find pictures of people more interesting than anything else, the people at these car shows I just thought (were) really, really interesting and cool-looking, and so I wanted to capture that. Also, it was something that nobody else was doing. You know, there were a bunch of people taking pictures of the cars, but there was nobody who was really documenting the people and the culture in the way that I ended up doing.
The idea of the title was that it was more like the title of a song, there's a real sort of musical aspect to this scene, and (my friend and I) liked the idea of the title being something that was more like a blues song and that would have that sort of energy to go along with this gritty, real, ultra-realism kind of feel.
I (feel) like the black and white here, I think that it sort of takes (people) out of reality a bit and makes them sort of more iconic, i like that it makes them look more like a piece of art. I think these portraits are almost sculptural in some ways. They've very simple, very direct, and I think the black and white helps with all of that.
I would say the overall message of the book is ... about how we're all more similar than we are different and about the connection and real honesty and rawness in these images, i feel like (the subjects) are really real, and it really comes across. I feel like they're very open with me in these pictures. I hope that (this) comes across to people.
