Patina Gallery welcomes internationally renowned automobile photographer, Michael Furman, to Santa Fe for his third exhibition.

The artist introduces his latest collection of fine art photography, celebrating revolutionary automobile rear-end design.



For over 35 years, the artist has captured the world’s most significant cars and relates them to the many beautiful and intricate facets of the automobile experience. In every photograph, Furman tells the story of the designers and engineers: Those who, in response to the social and political contexts in which they worked, idealized the cars of the future. 

Furman’s curated images are presented to you from his latest passion project, Badass, the newly released book by Bruce Meyer and John Nikas. Following this, the artist returns for his exhibition at Patina of the same name, Badass, highlighting 12 of his favorite selections.


Celebrate Furman’s opening at our street-wide car event & gallery reception.
