Flash Cars

The Aug/Sept 1977 issue of Photo-Forum featured many cool shots by Murray Cammick presented under the title "Flash Cars". In May of 77 NZ Hot Rod also featured 3 pages of these shots. At the time Murray was a design and layout man for Photo-Forum and had recently co-founded the new rock music newspaper Rip It Up. The Flash Cars collection documents Auckland's Queen Street scene as it really was. Murray insisted on using nothing but a 50mm lens without flash to avoid exageration of the cars shapes or disturbing the people and reflections that add so much to these shots.
Check back for more from Murray's Flash Cars collection.

This shot features 1960 Fairlane with familiar faces from the time. Anyone recognise these dudes?
