Freeway Eyewear

Karen Kilimnik in Freeway 405s in a taxi just leaving the Met

Filed under: Art,Inspiration — Tags: , — Alex @ 9:55 am

Karen Kilimnik’s work examines the beauty, romance and glamour of our culture with equal-part starry-eyed wonderment and ¬†brutally honest aspirational longing. Her particular lens is both soft-focus and crystal-clear all at once. We’d like to spend a day seeing the world through her 405s, out her car window.
