This book offers a non-exhaustive look at service stations highlighting their different aspects, past, present and future – do they actually have any future? – through a selection of photos and paintings from a private collection, gathered over the years. A cocktail of nostalgia, history, aesthetics, romanticism, emotion, realism, social aspects and a pinch of humor. A tentative attempt to uncover the soul of the service station, transforming a rather dull subject into a lively, creative almost sexy one.
The book, with size 23x23cm (9×9 inches), comprises 96 pages and includes 70 works by 40 different artists (mainly photographers but also some painters)
