The beautiful wasteland shredding machines featured in Mad Max: Fury Road are custom made (and fully functional) works of automotive art, most of which were wrecked by the time the film was in the can.
But before they ended up in the scrap pile photographer John Platt was given the opportunity to photograph each of the 150 cars used in the production with proper lighting in his studio.
Platt's two part series "Before The Dirt" is an homage to the Angel of Combustion, who was clearly guiding the hands of the blackfingers who built the amazing vehicles who very nearly stole the show from Saint Max.
