Headlighting 1974-1978

Photographs by Thaddeus Holownia

In the mid-70s, Thaddeus Holownia travelled across North America in an homage to the work of photography pioneer Henry Fox Talbot. The resulting work, capturing cars and their owners, is now available in this beautiful edition.

A book with a stark white cover, Headlighting 1974-1978, sits on a black surface.

In his introduction, Robert Tombs recounts how Holownia was encouraged to use a wide-angle camera by Allan Fleming, as well as his subsequent travels and photographic methods.

A book sits open on a dark surface. On the page, there is a black and white photo of a 1939 Packard Limousine. A crowd moves around the car while one man stands behind the car looking into the camera.

Each one of Holownia’s photographs occupies a single page and shows one or two people posing with their vehicles. The urban landscape of the photographs and the clothes and looks of the people contribute to the effect of Holownia having captured a distinct and stylish moment in time.
