women and wheels

part of my joy in collecting photographs is to see what groups of similar themes form over time.  some images repeat so often as to be truly iconic, none more so than women photographed in front of cars. I find the repeated pairing fascinating: many human subjects seem posed by their proud partners, while others are more insistent on proudly posing themselves. Despite this play of subject and object, the snapshots are often as much portraits of the cars as of the women themselves.
