Photo by Roger Snider. Snider has been photographing custom big rigs since 2005, when he began shooting stills for the documentary film “Big Rig.” He is currently working on a book project shooting amazing trucks all over the world. He writes:
“This was shot in Aichi Japan at a Truck Show for kids May 5 during the end of ‘Golden Week’ last year. The man pictured here is the owner of the truck which is a customized refrigerated delivery truck. He put about $100K American into getting it just right. It’s actually pouring down rain (you can see the rain drops in the foggy area on the right side of the image) and I am holding an umbrella over my Mark II while shooting this 8 sec exposure…. Aichi is a small farm town in the middle of nowhere, but 300 of these ‘Art Trucks’ from various truck clubs showed up to help fund-raise for less fortunate kids.”
