RFAH09 from “Requiem for a Hotel”.… illustrating life coalesced with the decaying remains of a long-abandoned turn of the 20th century hotel.  This once grand hotel was the muse for this project.  This work does not attempt to shout a message to the viewer but alternatively strives to be a catalyst for individuals to explore and create personal narratives from their imaginations, thus a symbiotic collaboration is formed between the work and the onlooker.  This image is one of series of photographs that allows a peek inside this once significant Petersburg Virginia edifice that has been closed for years and unseen by many.  Elements of the hotel coupled with the insertion of life using a traditional photographic process that is as old as photography itself (multiple exposures on a single frame) allows for an unfettered view of the interior of this structure and makes for an artistic creation that demands one to take pause, actively view and explore.
