These Amazing Photos Were Taken with a Car's Onboard Camera


From film to digital, DSLR to smartphone cameras, photographers have been constantly experimenting on using different formats and mediums for their craft. The latest one is using a car’s on-board camera. Using the all-new Volvo XC60 on-board safety cameras, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Barbara Davidson created a special collection of photographers.

This is the first time ever that a car is used as a camera by a photographer. Davidson’s collection of around 30 photographs, taken through the lenses of the XC60’s on-board safety cameras, captures life on the streets of the Danish capital Copenhagen from a completely fresh perspective.

Davidson, a multiple Pulitzer Prize-winner, holder of an Emmy Award and a former staff photographer for the Los Angeles Times newspaper, chose to work with Volvo Cars based on her own history with the brand.

“I have a very personal connection with Volvo Cars. When I was a teenager I was involved in a serious road accident where the car flipped over which, in normal circumstances, would probably have proven fatal. I was told later that I had survived because of the car I had been travelling in – a Volvo,” said Barbara Davidson.

Davidson’s photographs were first exhibited at Canvas Studios gallery in London’s Shoreditch this week and the exhibition will travel to other countries this year.
