The Hotel Room Series

“Suddenly this camera, this thing, allowed me to move around the world in a certain kind of way, with a certain kind of purpose.” Carrie Mae Weems

For me, being behind a camera lens is as if I stepped into another world. A world where I see people from a whole different perspective, a world where I am confident in myself and in those around me. In my photographs, I strive to imitate that exact feeling and perspective.

The Hotel Room Series* was highly inspired by Carrie Mae Weems, who herself created a series titled “The Kitchen Table Series”. Weems series reflected how life emanates in just one small space of the world that we occupy. I wanted to recreate that with my own twist adding a look into a personal point of view, a view the camera typically doesn’t see.

*These photos were taken at The Queensbury Hotel.
