Classic car show in Alameda

Your all invited - This is not your normal automotive photography

Photography by Mike Hows, Troy Paiva, and Joe Reifer
Lucky Juju Pinball Art Gallery
September 4 - September 30, 2009
Opening Friday September 4th from 7-10 p.m.

Big M Automotive is a classic car dismantling yard in Williams, CA that specializes in 1950's Mercurys. The yard is also packed with big finned Chryslers, DeSotos, Dodges and rare late ?50s GM cars.

In 2008, night photographer Mike Hows approached the owner of Big M about shooting this amazing collection of Detroit Iron. Hows has been photographing Big M for over a year, and invited photographers Troy Paiva and Joe Reifer to join him on subsequent trips.

Hows, Paiva, and Reifer are specialists in photographing at night. Shooting within a few days of the full moon, the exposure times for their images typically range between 3-10 minutes. The images are often augmented through surreal light painting techniques, where a hand-held flash or flashlight is used to add light to the scene during the exposure.

Hows and Paiva utilize colored gel material over their lights to create bold, otherworldly colors in their images. Reifer takes a more documentary approach, favoring a warm natural glow. Each artist brings his own unique style and lighting techniques to the images of these amazing cars.

A Bay Area native, photographer Mike Hows focuses on capturing the past in a new light. See more of Mike's work:

Night Photographer and light painter Troy Paiva has been shooting abandonments and junkyards since 1989. His site, and his books "Lost America" and "Night Vision" have struck a chord in post-industrial cultures world-wide.

Joe Reifer photographs abandoned places at night, and suburban neighborhoods by day. Witness the his adventures online:
