Self-portraits and car photography become one in the Vladimir Nikolic 'Autoportraits' series. The artist photographed various automobiles from the front, and then replicated his interpretation of the cars' expressions in shots of himself. The end result is a quirky collection of photos ranging from sad to what I can only describe as goofy.

Popular animated films like Disney-Pixar's 'Cars' brought four-wheeled roadsters to life, but Nikolic's photo series is much more revealing and asks the viewer to imagine the face of the car rather than making it completely explicit. The artist's ability to match 24 different expressions with the cars shows how creative and imaginative he was to even take on this project. The next time you're out on the road, think back to the Vladimir Nikolic 'Autoportraits' shots and try to come up with your own human-car characters.
