Southern Footlights: Uncovering The Culture of Stock Car Racing in the American South
In this project, however, multiple elements densely merge and interact with each other. Faces, dusty bleachers, racetracks and car-bodies highlighted by hyper-saturated colours are just, in fact, interdependent components of a passionate yet thoughtful visual research that ultimately leads to the portrayed subjects, drivers and mechanics ingeniously caught by Harrison a few hours before the race.
Beneath the arch of a red and orange sunset, Harrison’s protagonists rise up beyond the artfully erected fence, giving us only a glimpse of that fascinating cultural landscape made up of insatiable ambitions and fleeting rivalries.
