1964 MAN AND MACHINE pays homage to the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Lamborghini via original photography by Leib Kopman.
The transformative and evolutionary nature of Lamborghini, from tractor manufacturer to high-performance sports car, is reflected in metamorphic black and white photography. The 2015 Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is situated in landmark and abstract settings in urban Toronto and rural southern Ontario.
The past is quoted and the future is suggested in the architectural referents, and the texture and patterns of light and shadow create a contemporary chiaroscuro.
The exhibition offers a purposefully subtle nod to the entomological, and within it, the museological quest to define, describe and preserve. The photographic exhibition is exploratory in nature, mapping out an almost cartographic journey in time and space. The portraits compel us to consider the meaning and role of the machine in modern life.
The gallery will consist of 150 original prints. All work will be 1/1 originals, framed and matted. The gallery will be updated regularly until the series is sold, and the site will remain as an archive.
