For ten years, Swiss artist Raffael Waldner (born 1972) has been developing a body of work called Car Crash Studies, in which he systematically documents accidents involving luxury and sports cars. Relics of chance and symbols of power, loss and death, these works are the cruel still lifes of a society obsessed with technology, mobility and wealth.
