Over the past three years, Jim Ryce has collected an interesting series of photographs of the corner 1/4 panels of classic American automobiles. Here are some together in an exhibition for your enjoyment.
The Quarter Panel series features the design details of classic cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70s. Focusing on the beautiful quarter panel shapes and typography the images highlight the incredible timeless design of the automobile from these eras Mostly photographed in Palm Springs California, the center of mid-century modern design, the images are a reminder of how much the designers of these cars where constantly pushing and exploring where automobile design could go.
