Cruise Night

Cruise Night is about the art of being seen. Catching the eye of a young woman. Falling in love. All while cruising down a boulevard. It is a glimpse at the beauty and grace of the car as a mobile canvas. These images arise from three years of immersing myself in Los Angeles’ tight-knit Mexican American lowrider community. The term "lowrider" refers to both a customized car and its driver. The lowrider tradition dates back to 1940s Los Angeles, when teenagers experimented with transforming their cars to reflect their personal style and sense of independence. Decades later, this youthful impulse to customize cars has grown into a cultural movement. Cruise Night is an invitation to question prior depictions of the Mexican American lowrider tradition, typically portrayed as crude and dangerous. With these images, I offer an intimate look at the style, grace, and history of this American art form.
