Mercedes-Benz isn’t the only German automaker involved in the art scene, as BMW plans to exhibit a series of retro photos featuring the 6 Series Gran Coupe at Paris Photo LA, an international photography show held at Paramount Pictures Studios. The photos were captured in the lens of German photographer Uwe Düttmann, and take inspiration from burlesque and film noir.
The series is composed of 15 different photos, featuring two models striking classic burlesque poses with the car. Dressed in ‘40s fashion, the models pose inside and outside the Gran Coupe for a clash of old-versus-new contrast. Four of the photos will be showcased at Paris Photo LA, which celebrates 10 years of its partnership with BMW.
Also making an appearance at the exhibition is the BMW M1 Art Car painted by Andy Warhol in 1979. The car will be displayed along with some rare behind-the-scenes footage of the pop artist painting the classic racing livery. The show runs from Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28.
