Contractor Vans . . . the blues.

by Jean

As we know I’m obsessed with contractor vans, and I’ve been waiting till I have enough images to be able to make a color collage–which was challenging because the majority of them are white.

The inspiration for the series comes from  Edward Tufte (who I LOVE!!)  and his concept of small mutiples projects. Here are some other  great examples of these types of projects:  Bernd and Hilla Becher, Spherical Gas Tanks, 1998 A Collection a Day , Sarcoptiform, and any of the Eadweard Muybridge projects.

So what have I learned from this experiment? Um, if we ever have a Swee10 van and we paint it blue, the text color of choice is clearly white!
