Artist Leon Syfrit creates still life photographs of blown out tires that he finds along the highway of his hometown in Las Vegas, Nevada. He aims to make pictures of tires in a fresh and engaging manner that encourages people to experience an ordinary object from a new perspective. The tires he photographs bear a striking resemblance to human gesture, body language, and organic matter, and are reminiscent of artistic sculpture.
