The Nostalgic Beauty of Abandoned Cars
In his unique photo journey, Dieter Klein travels to remote corners of Europe and the United States to find abandoned cars in forgotten places.
In shabby backyards and dusty barns, in deserted fields and thick forests, Klein roams strange and isolated places to find once gleaming vehicles left to rust and ruin. From a dented Porsche to a faded Cadillac, a battered VW Beetle to a whole fleet of abandoned military jeeps, Klein's subjects creak with bygone glamour and might. As moss and gnarled branches transform motors into eerie artifacts, Klein's award-winning automobile photography is not only a tribute to classic cars, but also to the transformative power of nature and the enduring intrigue of people and incidents unknown.
Dieter Klein is an independent photographer. In 2003, he received the "Beste Reportage" award from Bild der Wissenschaft for his report on robots. Lost Cars won "Best Photography" award at Discovery Days 2017 (Switzerland) and the El Mundo 2018 (Austria).
