Drive By

The inception of ‘Drive By’ took place when Phillips McLaren, impulsively, embarked on a chase after a thunderstorm in his car. Seated safely within the confines of his car, he directed his lens through the rain-streaked windscreen, allowing elements of the car’s interior and exterior to organically encroach in the frame.

Rather than eliminating the imperfections by cropping or retouching the blurred raindrops from the windscreen, he embraced them as integral components of the imagery, establishing the aesthetic that would define the entire project.
