THE BIG PIC­TURE

Classic Sports Car - - Contents -

As wild­fires once again rav­aged Cal­i­for­nia this Au­gust, they re­vived painful mem­o­ries for the vic­tims of the devastation that hit the re­gion a year ago, when 44 were killed and more than 100,000 were forced from their homes. But some­times beauty can be born of tragedy, and the ‘Art out of Ashes’ project hopes to har­ness that beauty to sup­port those af­fected by the fires.

In­spired by Richard Mis­rach’s im­ages of the 1991 Oak­land Hills fires, Rus­sell Hyzen and pho­tog­ra­pher Scott Mad­dern set out to cap­ture au­to­mo­tive re­mains in the Santa Rosa area for a se­ries of dra­matic stud­ies, in­clud­ing this 1931 Ford Model A Five Win­dow Coupe. The im­ages have been re­pro­duced as limited-edi­tion prints and a beau­ti­ful hard­back pho­to­book; to or­der, or make a do­na­tion, visit www.artout­o­fashes.org AC
