From the website:

Join Dutch artist Jacqueline Hassink as she discusses her latest book, Car Girls (Aperture, April 2009), in the context of her other critically acclaimed books and exhibitions that deal conceptually with issues of power and social relations. Car Girls is a body of work that Hassink created over five years, photographing “car girls” during major car shows in seven different cities on three continents. As she describes it, Hassink uses these sites to reflect on “differing cultural values with regard to their ideal images of beauty and women. The series captures the moments during the women’s performances when they become more like dolls or tools than individuals.”
