Scott Yeskel / by Philip Krayna

Two things I love to photograph: chairs and old cars. I recently discovered the work of Scott Yeskel, a painter based in San Francisco, and apparently we share an affinity for the same subject matter. As a former east coaster (from Jersey) transplanted to the west coast, Scott seems to enjoy the proliferation of classic autos parked in streets and driveways throughout sunny California. 

Yeskel describes his work as speaking "to those who identify with the California lifestyle – often romantic but sometimes plagued with frustration."

More of his bold, colorful abstractions can be seen at
