Portfolio > No Vacancy (2011 -2016)

“No Vacancy” (2011-2016) is a photographic series documenting abandoned
hotels that have sat vacant for nearly five to forty years. With several failed attempts to
bring each hotel back to life and plans of demolition, these structures await an uncertain
future.
In my work, I’m often drawn to abandoned places that appear to be frozen in time. I
use my camera to examine these places that have been forgotten by society. Through
the use of color and light, I attempt to capture the beauty the once existed in these
magnificent environments. By photographing these hotels, I hope to provide a visual record of what might be lost forever.
