It is the start of summer, so naturally we pulled the top off of our Jeep Wrangler Rubicon JL. I was looking for a place to drive on on recent early Saturday morning, and chanced upon a “Jeeps and Java” gathering in nearby Harrah. I have also been wanting to dust off my Toyo VX-125 large format 4″x5″ film camera and take some photos. So I took it as an opportunity to drive our Jeep and take pictures with my 4×5 film camera.
I love taking portraits. I find people very interesting. And one interesting thing I have observed is that many people like to customize their Jeep Wranglers to fit their personality and the types of exploring they like to do. So I decided to start a film portrait series titled – what else – “It’s a Jeep Thing”. Portraits of people with their Jeep Wranglers, shot on black and white large-format film.
This is my first in hopefully a long series of images. These were taken at the Jeeps and Java gathering in Harrah, Oklahoma on June 12, 2021. Enjoy.
