the delorean DMC-12


fire, smoke and neon lights play heavily in felix hernandez‘s photos. to create the electrifying series, a stict set-up was constructed using a thin layer of flour sprinkled under the car model with red and blue lights either side. all of the effects used by the artist were timed perfectly in order to capture the retro inspired shoot. the result, in turn, brings the vintage film back into the future.
