American Muscle is a series about car shows in New York and New Jersey. I grew up in a place without cars and I don't even have a drive license so I was curious about this world.
I decided to do this project in order to evidence the aesthetic of these events and to explore how people present themselves through their cars and how those become more than objects, a way to connect with other individuals and establish relationships.
