This crossroads was the site of the car crash that killed James Dean in 1955. The photograph is thanks to the British lensman Dean Rogers, and it’s snapped in the precise position of the car before impact, at the same date and time as the original crash. Other snaps in the series include Marc Bolan, Jackson Pollock, and Albert Camus.
