In this video interview, Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink presents her new book "Car Girls" (Aperture, 2009). Hassink explains how she began this project five years ago. Photographing major car shows in seven different cities on three continents, Hassink discusses how she captured moments of these women’s performances and then how she “mapped” the project by dividing these car girls into different categories. Her project takes a subversively fun yet conceptually astute approach to issues of gender, power, and commodification. Hassink also speaks about the sexy and clever design of the book by award-winning Irma Boom and shares her memorable experience as she dresses up as a car girl in one of the auto shows.
