"The images in this book comprise photographer Thaddeus Holownia's large-format portrait series, Headlighting 1974-1978. This project, on the theme of internal-combustion-engine vehicles and their drivers, ostensibly 'car culture', is a body of work that has become increasingly provocative at the 'end of oil'. It was Allan Fleming, the distinguished Canadian graphic designer, who first suggested to fledgling photographer Holownia-when he presented his portfolio to Fleming at the University of Toronto Press in 1974-that he might consider using a view camera. Holownia freely admits that this meeting changed his life. Shortly thereafter he began Headlighting, a series which originated in Toronto but overflowed into the US Midwest and ended with his move to New Brunswick, Canada."
