Driving around his immediate surroundings Ian Phillips McLaren explores his local landscape.
Ian jumped into his car to chase a thunder storm, from the safety of his car he pointed his lens through the wet windscreen. The brooding clouds cut available light to near darkness; in order to capture a sharp usable image he set his tripod awkwardly between his legs and steering wheel. The out of focus rain drops on the windscreen along with parts of the cars interior set the aesthetic for ‘Drive By’. Eager to start his new project, he set out on the first day of the new year – January 1st 2019.
