Using miniature model muscle cars (scale 1:18) that he carefully photographs dangling in midair and then seamlessly places on iconic city streets he’s photographed in large format, Matthew Porter presents a portfolio of twenty-five images of vintage cars, captured as they careen over highway intersections. Each photograph is a freeze-frame—a hypothetical film still from a pulp-fiction chase scene. The photographs, known popularly as the “flying car” series, are a hybrid of hyperreality and studied, topographic description, part bittersweet nostalgia and part ironic reinvention of a classic American trope.
