An introspective journey into the mystery of time and love.
In The Dream Vehicle, the photographer duo WitkowskaVerbunt buys a car and sets off on a road trip through the Benelux. They embark on a photographic quest for a deeper understanding of the adult male-female relationship and along the way become the actual object of their investigation.
The road trip, as a metaphor for the journey of life, shows the protagonists in their poetic, introspective quest for time and love. Everyday events are documented and stylized into visual reflections on life’s relationships. They translate their feelings into dreamy stories. Nodding to the classic road-trip movies, in which ordinary people become heroes in their own universe, with The Dream Vehicle the duo questions the ideal form of being in a time that passes.
The book, a 312 page photo novel, is an artistic and adventurous collection of photography, poetry and prose from four years of research during seven journeys. The book is part of a multidisciplinary whole in which the reader is encouraged to become acquainted with film and music that play an important role in the story.
