I came up for the idea for this issue a few months ago while driving across the country and crashing night after night in the dumpy motels that line the highways coast to coast. The aesthetics of these places always vacillates for me between repulsive and comforting. They are just Trashed.
I didn’t want it to just be an issue of 10 photographers shooting in hotels though, so I stole an assignment from one of my favorite teachers, Robert Golding, who recently passed away where we had to take professional images with disposable cameras. No rules, just make art with the cheapest camera money can buy.
