Art and performance, a symbiosis which hardly any other automobile manufacturer brings together with such elegance as Aston Martin. THOMAS SCHORN photographed the special on the ASTON MARTIN Vantage for Aston Martin Lagonda of Europe and staged a powerful world in which art builds an emotional bridge to performance.
“The focus is on artist Benjamin Rayher, who processes his experiences with the wild cat from carmaker Astin Martin in turn wildly in an untamed manner, and brings the result onto the screen,” photographer Thomas Schorn tells GoSee.
As a student of Prof. Markus Lüpertz and Prof. Siegfried Anzinger at the Düsseldorf Art Academy as well as a student at the School of Visual Arts in New York, he draws inspiration from portraits. He stages characters who fascinate him – mainly from film, travels, or his friends – in his very own way. To this end, he has developed his own genre of art over the years, metarealism, which is an amalgamation of various different movements.
Aston Martin Lagonda was the name of multiple sedans sold by British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin between fall 1974 and summer 1989. Three different models of the Aston Martin Lagonda were offered over the course of around fifteen years, with a total of 660 vehicles built.
