These Are Brochure Photos For Life With A Classic Volkswagen T3 Camper Van

Living with something undoubtedly lends itself to gaining a more intimate perspective of it. Photographers try to capture that intimacy in only a few frames, perhaps in a close portrait or in a gloomy shot of a deeply grey street scene.

In Brook James’ case, it’s difficult to not see the pull that his Volkswagen T3 Camper has on him, and his shots. He sent these to us in advance of an upcoming road trip through Tasmania, with the promise to write a more in-depth look at the joys of traveling in an older VW van—besides the scenery, of course.

“Hands down my favourite vehicle I have owned to date,” he says, and we can see why. As a commercial photographer generally working on different subjects in Melbourne, Australia, James uses his van travels and passion for vehicles as a way to merge his photography with a love of cars.
