This Chevrolet Corvette is an American lost in London

It’s remarkable how the environment in which a car is situated can affect the way we feel about it. Take this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette in London, for example…


These striking photos were shot by Gus Nwanya-Aliyu, who deliberately sought out locations (the business district around the Royal Exchange and Brick Lane, in case you were wondering) to contrast with the car’s lairy red paint and angular curves. It certainly ‘pops’ in front of the muted stone and steel buildings, yet looks suitably at home in the graffiti-strewn streets around Brick Lane. A hipster Corvette – who knew?
