Exhausted, abandoned, wounded, the collection of cars captured by Sébastien Girard are in fact desperate. We find them in the middle of the night, broken wrecks bearing the scars of their mad days wheeled by man. An analytical flash captures them in their everlasting solitude. Desperate cars is the second book of the series inaugurated by Nothing but Home.

Fatiguées, délaissées, blessées, les voitures dont Sébastien Girard fait l'inventaire photographique sont en effet désespérées. On les retrouve au fond de la nuit, choses mortes au point mort, immobiles après l'homme et la folie des jours dont elles portent les affres. Un flash méthodique les saisit dans cette solitude sans rémission. Desperate cars est le second livre de la série qu'inaugurait Nothing but Home.
