she being Brand & Coming Home Detroit 1968

Summary: she being Brand is a poem about driving a new car. e.e. cummings describes the experience in a sexual way. The words he uses make you believe that he is talking about being with a women for the first time but the woman is a car. Coming Home Detroit is about the destruction one sees when driving through Detroit. From air pollution to street pollution.

Communication Problem: For this shoot the concept is shooting a toy car. Since it has to be 1 car for both pieces I have to find a way to make each photo specific to the writing.

Image Ideas: Shooting a 1964 red mustang. For she being Brand i wanted to take a dark close up shot where the red would look really bright and mysterious. For Coming Home Detroit I was thinking about shooting the car on plexiglass to get a nice reflection and maybe photoshopping fog.
