Description

Photograph of a vehicle utilizing trick photography to make it appear that the car has been split in two. There are three men in this photo. One man is driving the vehicle, another man appears to be jumping off, or over, the vehicle while another looks on in disbelief. Narrative by Junebug Clark: Joe always said "Photography is a kin to Journalism" and that he created "Pictures that tell a story". When cars first started coming out with front wheel drive he imagined "A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle so powerful that it could leave its back end behind." Here Joe used his "Hillbilly Ingenuity" to illustrate that thought. Driving is Joe himself. Leaping in the air is Ron Unternahrer. And looking on in disbelief is Ed Nobel. Photo by: Joe Clark, HBSS.
