Pictures from The Virgin Suicides & Lost In Translation by Sofia Coppola
“The world seems to me increasingly incomprehensible, and there are times when I feel there isn’t anything that I know for certain. For me, making photographs (or painting, or whatever) is necessary to translate the unintelligible reality of being into a more coherent form. Or at least to illustrate my best guesses. There is vastly more nothing in the universe than something, and I try to create images that recognize the grace by which anything at all exists.”

The Kaufdorf Car Junk Yard in Switzerland. This junk yard has around 500 cars all ranging between 1930’s and 1960’s and hasn’t been touched in 30 years! Originally bought for the parts by a car dealer who ended up parking them on his lot so he wouldn’t have to see them torn apart.
According to this Website there was a court order put in to have the cars removed from the land in 2008. On Google Maps I found the car lot as pictured in the last picture and it shows the cars still there. Hopefully the owner was able to allow them to remain as nature seems to have become fond of these beautiful relics.
