This was fun! I love making meaningful images that are powerful and evoke emotion. Scott is one of my good friends who’s father recently passed away. Scott’s Grandfather purchased this 1962 Lincoln new from the dealer and left it to Scott’s father who has now left it to Scott. This car has been in their family for three generations now and it is in near perfect original condition.
Scott and I have been talking about doing a memorial portrait with Scott and the Lincoln, and wanted to created something that evoked memories of his Father while at the same time focusing on Scott and his future. He spent much of his youth with his father at a stone and landscaping supply yard that his father frequented as a Landscape Architect. Scott is a talented musician and spends much of his time in the mountains running, biking, climbing and kayaking, so the landscape supply yard with the mountains in the background became an ideal location to create these images.
