After taking a year out to recover from the success of the last series of the Light Graffiti Cars, entrepreneur Marc Cameron and photographer Mark Brown are back with a new batch of images of iconic cars created using light painting.
Since being launched in late 2009, the Light Graffiti Cars have gone to rack up millions of hits through appearing on the websites of Top Gear, The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, MSN, Jalopnik and Trend Hunter, to name a few. They’ve also appeared in children’s books, leading car publications, and are set to go on show in a major light graffiti exhibition later this year.
Light Graffiti Cars co-creator Marc Cameron spoke to us on a hands-free phone while driving down an LA highway in his McLaren MP4-12C (we suspect it was actually a clapped out Ford Sierra being driven through London):
“It’s been over a year since Mark and I launched the Light Graffiti Cars hit London, arguably our most successful collaboration to date,” says Cameron.
“We wanted this latest series to showcase the hottest motors on show at this year’s motorshows, hence the inclusion of the Renault Alpine A110-50, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Volkswagen Cross Coupe Concept, and the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7. We’ve also thrown in the Ford Focus RS, purely because it’s an absolute beast of a car!
In “no way whatsoever” did we include the Superdry Morgan Threewheeler as a way of trying to get major companies to give us mega amounts of money to do one-off pictures for them. That thought never crossed our innocent minds, whatsoever,” he added.
Along with adding the legendary BMW M1 to the latest series (they’re just dusting it off), the Light Graffiti Cars team are currently working with other major names from the light painting world to set up an exhibition showcasing this innovative art form. More information coming soon.
