Title: American Neon Signs by Day & Night
In the mid seventies, Toon Michiels made various journeys to the United
States of America, where he undertook a number of road trips in a
rented. Very quickly, Michiels developed a fascination for the
spectacular neon signs that motels and restaurants had placed along the
highways to lure passing drivers to make a stop-over.
Michiels photographed them by day and by night in a rigid, systematic
way: frontal view, placing them in the middle of the frame with just a
bit of space around them – whatever size they might be.
American Neon Signs by Day & Night series is
exhibited in Arles until September 6.
