Our favorite automotive Instagrams this week
If all cars are art, then by extension, aren’t photos of cars art too?
We think so. And we’ve decided that the best automotive-related images on Instagram deserve a little more attention. We asked members of Hagerty’s Media Team to share their recent (non-Hagerty) favorites. Here are their picks, listed in alphabetical order by first name:
Ben Woodworth—I like this photo because it’s old race cars being driven in the rain! Cars are meant to be driven! Especially race cars!
Eric Weiner—Maybe it’s because I’ve been jonesing really hard for a 2002, and Inka Orange is the color of my dream-haze, but I love this little gallery. Amy Shore is a very talented and on-the-rise photographer with a well-curated Instagram, always popping with color and unexpected details.
Jeff Peek—OK, OK, I know there isn’t a car in this photo. But everyone who loves cars can relate to the excitement and anticipation of the road ahead. Give me a classic SUV, a full tank of gas, and Glacier National Park. I’m rarin’ to go.
Joe DeMatio—I’ll take Pikes Peak, Ken Block, and a helicopter! Great photo by Jeff Zwart.
Jordan Lewis—I like this photo because it’s a great use of overexposure. Plus it’s a BAC Mono… my dream car.
Larry Webster—This one’s my favorite, for the anticipation of the drive. There’s movement here even though there’s not.
Matt Lewis—This beautiful hot rod pulled into the driveway of Larry Babb while we were filming this last episode of The Wrenchmen. It had a great sound, great stance, and awesome presence. Our video guy, Ben, did a fantastic job capturing the moment.
Mike Austin—The name of this feed really explains it all. Rad cars, rad surfboards. What’s not to love? This particular automotive radness features a car that I own—a red Alfa Romeo Spider.
Sandon Voelker—I love this photo because it takes us away from what we typically perceive to be Porsche environment.
Stefan Lombard—I love this nighttime lineup of Ecurie Ecosse racers in the paddock at the Goodwood Revival—particularly the striking blues and the symmetry of all those Scottish flags.
Todd Kraemer—Whilst I’m not the biggest Porsche fan in the world, I love the editorial feel of the images (mostly the German cars) in Rennfilms’ gallery. Great use of natural light, environment, and composition to tell a compelling story in a single image. It gives the photos a real warmth you don’t tend to see in a lot of sheet metal photography.
