Car Wash

A glossy collection of stills taken from the Kodak Super 8 film “Car Wash” directed by BB Gunn, starring Joey Heinen. The book’s horizontal format acts as a flip book, splicing the moving image into a series of diptychs contrasting man to machine, tough to tenderness, sweat to soap. Shot in Hollywood, California, the story transforms an everyday act of LA car culture into cinematic ritual, captured on the city’s historically favorite medium, celluloid.
