In his new series, Bay Views, Mark Lyon reveals unexpected beauty in the most unusual setting: the American car wash. Sixteen urban locations in different stages of function are captured with existing unaltered light at night. Lyon considered each image for days and sometimes years to capture each setting at exactly the right moment, day and season without a person in sight. This thoughtful approach
to photographing this series in the decisive moment creates distinctive images in contrast to our current world, which is saturated with spontaneous imagery.
