Oscar Monzón’s book “Karma” is a study of the car as public and personal space. The book is intelligently designed, with strange juxtapositions of shiny chrome mechanical objects and surreal portraits from odd angles. Monzón uses an intense flash aesthetic and embraces his invasion of others privacy: showing photographs of drivers doing drugs, flipping the camera off, and in dire situations. Monzón’s book shows the in between space of the car, and all the absurd activities that occur within this box that so many of us spend endless hours in.
