The Automotive Life

For the past year, photographer, Aaron Leven has been documenting the subculture of boy racers.

Photographed predominantly in Yorkshire, The Automotive Life captures the public spaces – including retail park car parks - where car groups meet up and take over the space for the night, exchanging the latest tips on car modifications, have rev-offs, do donuts, buy stickers and generally escape from the monotony of day-to-day working life.

The meets provide a social space for youths and bystanders alike to meet and become a part of a growing community.
