Yesterday, I mentioned the start of the SXSW 2022 coverage, and my first stop was the Porsche Unseen exhibit. Porsche built an elaborate but temporary structure on an empty parking lot to showcase these prototype cars. Today you get to see the five vehicles in the exhibit.
Luckily, I arrived early on Friday. The benefit was no line to get in — but more importantly — making pictures without anyone in the frame. I took extensive photos from multiple angles, and there were other visitors in the building. Creative framing and waiting for opportune times allowed me to get people-free photos. Almost. One of the images actually has a mostly obscured person in the frame. Can you spot that photo?
Despite being prototypes that usually push the design boundaries, I was amazed by the cohesive Porsche design language. You can clearly tell they are Porsches even though they weren’t the typical street-legal ones. The blue toy-like car may need an explanation. Sally Carrera was a character from Pixar’s Cars movies. It was a cute gesture to include her in the gallery.
I used my Fujifilm GFX 50S II with the Fuji GF35mm-70mm lens. In-body image stabilization allowed for high-quality hand-held imagery. I’m glad I had this set up for this exhibit. It allowed me to make images at a higher quality than with my other cameras.
