Forest Punk is a photo book of automotive dinosaurs

Left to rot among our planet’s woodlands, deserts and neglected concrete jungles, the classic cars featured in Forest Punk – a book by photographer Dieter Klein – resemble skeletons from another world…

Car graveyards

German photographer Dieter Klein was first inspired to photograph the rusting carcasses of classic cars during a trip to France in 2009, where he chanced upon a sorry-looking Citroën pick-up truck in the bushes near a farm. Since then, Cologne-based Klein has become fascinated with the manner in which nature envelops and repurposes each vehicle, discovering many more car graveyards around the world: in France, Belgium, Sweden and the United States.
