From a limited edition of 10 archival photographs. Charity and Narza on a 1929 Ford Roadster. The Great Depression afflicted every race in America. About fifty percent of African Americans were out of work, and tensions between blacks and whites surged in the U.S. The predecessors of these two models might have been in competition for jobs to build automobiles like this one. This car, found in a shop that restores rusting shells into candy-glossy gems, symbolizes the power of nostalgia. Rather than gloss over the past, we can use it to reflect and draw inspiration.

A K Nicholas was born in the United States and raised in the Middle East. Always at ease with visual expression, as a second generation artist, childhood included exposure to galleries and museums in dozens of countries. Although formally trained in painting and drawing, he chose photography as best suited to convey his ideas. "I feel the most successful images leave the viewer either unsure or unconcerned as to the precise process of production."
