Ulysse Fréchelin's surprising portrait of "American Trucks"
Ulysse’s speciality is using still-life techniques in natural light, which demands both huge commitment and considerable patience on his part. He is constantly at the mercy of the elements, often needing to wait in the same place for hours at a time, until a combination of factors – height of the sun, cover of the clouds, breath of the wind – all align so he can capture the perfect shot.
Ulysse had to do just that to create his series “American Trucks”, a collection of breathtaking portraits celebrating that powerful icon of the American freeways, the trucking rig.
Shooting for more than a fortnight in intense heat at truck stops on the Arizona-New Mexico border, Ulysse made brilliant use of the dazzling light to bring out the gleaming chrome and vibrant colours of these automotive behemoths – bold yellows, greens and reds – as well as the vast blue skies of their American West backdrop. His use of close-ups and unconventional angles transforms seemingly familiar details into extraordinary artistic explosions of shapes and colour.
