This series is about the last decade in which it was still possible to celebrate the fetish car completely unrestrained.
In 2011 I started photographing portraits of car owners with special relationships to their vehicles. I also started taking pictures of automotive events and places where the car is the center of attention and traveled all over Germany for that.
The combustion engine, which decisively shaped the intimate relationship with the automobile, is now doomed to extinction. Its time is slowly running out. The car as we have long known it is losing its value as a status symbol. But it will not disappear because of this.
