Rick Mccloskey - Van Nuys Blvd 1972
|Publisher||Sturm & Drang|
In the Los Angeles suburb of San Fernando Valley, Wednesday night was cruise night. A long stretch of Van Nuys Boulevard would be packed with kids and cars from all over Southern California – the place to show off your ride. By 1972, the year Rick McCloskey went to Van Nuys to shoot this series of photographs, the culture on the boulevard had become an amalgamation of various lifestyles, automobiles, and very different looks and styles. The tribes included surfers, low-riders, muscle cars, street racers, and even “retro” styles from the 1950s. McCloskey offers a fascinating portrayal of the young people, their cars, and iconic backgrounds; a world that has long since vanished.
