Andrew Bush har bl.a. lavet serien “Vector Portraits“, der også er blevet udgivet i bogform (sjovt nok med titlen “Drive”):

(De 2 sidste billeder er lånt fra DLK Collections anmeldelse af en tidligere udstilling af serien)

I anmeldelsen har DLK Collection bl.a. følgende beskrivelse af serien:

Andrew Bush’s portraits of people driving their cars along California highways have an almost anthropological feel to them, a study in American car culture and the public and private spaces our cars create for us. With a medium format camera and flash mounted to the passenger side of his car, he made consistent images of anonymous cars and their passengers as they traveled by, often at high speed. Most of the pictures capture the driver side door, the steering wheel, the back wheel, and of course, the driver, mostly staring forward, but often doing something else. Hung together, they create a Becher-like typology of forms, colorful variations from image to image helping to define the essence of the subject: the funky personalities of the people and their cars, the external signs of social classes, and the dated but somehow nostalgic styles.
