San Francisco, CA – On Thursday, November 3 2011, Peek Gallery proudly presents LOW LIFE, a photography series by photographer & artist, Trevor Traynor. The opening reception will feature motion visuals by John Coyne and live deejays playing low rider oldies.

Trevor Traynor has spent years documenting hip-hop culture, having shot everyone from Pete Rock, T.I., KrsOne, E-40, N.E.R.D., Redman, Mos Def and so many more. But after a chance encounter with a Lowrider car club, Traynor has now turned his lens toward this historic subculture. Last Cinco de Mayo he jumped in the back of a flan colored 69 Buick Skylark convertible and documented his first cruise. Capturing what he notes as "the passion and pride" that come with living in the Lowrider culture, Traynor accurately depicts the owners and their families in a way that is only deserving of the iconic culture that they are a part of. Continuing to research the different chapters and car clubs throughout the country, Traynor takes his talent of documenting the rawness of the open road and brings the "low life" into the public eye, in all its breathtaking yet forthright nature. Trevor elaborates, “My goal is to showcase the riders and their cars, the passion and the pride that are a part of low rider living."

In addition to Trevor’s limited edition prints, a limited run of LOW LIFE wood engraved pins, stickers, and posters will be available. Not to mention a handful of car club appearances that will make the opening reception of LOW LIFE truly memorable.
