Opening soon: Air Drive exhibition at MB&F M.A.D.Gallery, Dubai
Where retro meets the future
Fresh from celebrating its 5th anniversary, MB&F M.A.D.Gallery is set to host a new photographic exhibition at its Dubai outpost titled Air Drive. Inspired by his own idea of the future when he was a young boy, French photographer Renaud Marion photographed classic and vintage cars – think the Aston Martin DB5, Porsche 356, Chevrolet El Camino and Jaguar XK120 – before superimposing the shots against backdrops that reflect a retro era. Then he looks to the future and in a visionary move, removed the wheels from the cars to create a floating mode of transportation.
"As a child, I imagined the new millennium with flying cars, spaceships, parallel worlds, extra-terrestrials living with us on earth and time travel," said Marion. "We would have all been dressed up in space outfits and equipped with laser pistols. These are the dreams of a normal child, I think... I hope."
