“Sunday Drive” is Luke Smalley’s final and perhaps most impressive body of work. It is a highly narrative series which tells the story of three gorgeous young women who primp and preen before climbing into a convertible car. As one delves deeper into the project, it soon becomes clear that the girls are on their way to the state prison to visit their incarcerated boyfriends. The second half of “Sunday Drive” consists of photographs of the attractive young men killing time in the slammer waiting for their sweethearts to arrive.

“Sunday Drive” also exists as a monograph from Twin Palms Publishers.
