Paul McWain – Auburn Hills, MI

Dubbed the  “Front Man” by the Detroit Free Press, Paul has made a name for himself photographing classic automobiles. His attraction to vintage cars lies in what he calls the “automobile’s character or face of the car.” Paul’s most recent body of work often focuses on pre-1960’s vehicles expressive grills and sculptural chrome work in order to emphasize the attention to detail that gives vintage cars distinctive personalities.
Statement: My work is photographed  both digitally & traditionally at outdoor locations in Michigan. Each image is digitally manipulated through a series of subtle changes that serve both to isolate sculptural components of a classic car from its original context as well as enhance the brilliant colors that define the character of each vehicle. The effect produces iconographic images of both rare and familiar cars of the past and present. In my home studio the images are then printed on linen coated paper using archival methods.
