Traveling Cars Adventures

about Kim Leuenberger

Kim Leuenberger really loves travelling, adventuring, and taking photos — you’ll never see her without a camera in her bag. She’s got a thing for small retro toy cars that she takes with her everywhere she goes, creating their own little world, and entering her little bubble of happiness. One of her projects is Traveling Cars Adventures, an amazing concept she’s very fond of since every picture has a story to tell about her exploring side.

“It has been love at first sight with a little Nikon D3100. Almost 2 years later, I’ve upgraded to a Canon 5D Mark III and learned all I know about photography by myself, by reading magazines or websites. I love being creative, as well as documenting the life around me, making objects tell a story through my pictures. I love all things vintage, because they had a life and they almost want to tell you their stories, which is exactly what I want to transmit with my work”.

Kim comes from Switzerland, but she moved to “this fabulous city that is London” to study photography at University of the Arts London: “London is full of opportunities. You can actually make it as a photographer here! I find it mesmerizing. How the cultures just mix and mingle perfectly, everyone being open, it’s easy to make connections”.

About the cars of the series, they are holidays souvenirs she finds wherever she or her family travel. She just likes them to have little adventures. There is only one very important thing about their faces: they need to be friendly, to look like they’re looking at you… “but that’s difficult to explain”.
