Clean Rooms, Low Rates

Description:

Clean Rooms, Low Rates is a collaboration between British photographer Brendan Barry and I. Brendan traveled the US, photographing, among other things, empty hotel rooms. I wrote story-like things to go with them. The press that published it, Mount Analogue, designed it to look exactly like a Gideon Bible, see comparative photo in its natural habitat (aka a hotel room’s nightstand drawer) below.
