Michael Corridore’s primary interest over the past six years has been inventing new narratives around automobile culture and its influence on us. After photographing spectators at various races and burnouts contests, Corridore began to explore precise moments brought about by a convergence of figure, landscape and atmosphere. The resulting Angry Black Snake series features barely recognizable spectators cloaked in smoke and dust. We are purposefully given room for misinterpretation, as the true nature of these events is never fully disclosed. You cannot help but be drawn in by Corridore’s "fictional realities" and the work is remarkable for its use of restraint as a strategy to immerse the viewer.
