Vans and the places they were

[caption id="attachment_29268" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Photo: Joe Stevens"][/caption]

"Vans and the places where they were" is a project by filmmaker/photographer Joe Stevens that artfully presents... a bunch of vans. Each photo frames the subject identically, yet the vans and the locales are various, shot over the course of 13 years and counting.
Vans and the places where they were documents surviving custom and conversion vans across the West and examines the dialogue which exists between a van’s design aesthetic and that of its surrounding environment. The project began in 1996 and currently consists of hundreds of images shot on 120mm film.

Maybe they should change the title to "Vans owned by Mexicans in L.A.". Looks like the ones we use to have, back in the day anyways.Brings back some good memories. I bet you most of those vans have or had 8 tracks and c.b. radios. I know ours did.

"Like a picture she was layin' there
Moonlight dancin' off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
She's gonna love me in my Chevy van
And that's all right with me"
