Skylar Williams was raised in Las Vegas and studied photography at Ecal in Lausanne. A keen follower of car culture, he developed his aesthetic by rebuilding and photographing vintage muscle cars. His work, fixing and photographing cars, proclaims their resurrection. Skylar Williams’ photograph from his Destination series shows us a slogan: “Make every man cowboy again” written on a panel. The image is framed by a car window, it is seen through the window of a passing car, driving by through the American landscape. The car is the modern cowboy’s horse.
From white flags for peace to the black flag of pirates, and the rainbow flag for pride, in the folds of the flag there is an almost magical power. From the legendary and conquering flags of history books to the Stars and Stripes planted on the moon, they move with the command of icons and trophies. One of the oldest forms of media in the world, the flag now occupies a renewed place in public space. This is increasingly true in virtual public and online social networks. As a new media, it invites us to raise our heads to the sky. The flags of artists have become vectors of communication.
