Descending into Las Vegas
Copyright William A. Brown 2011
Descending into Las Vegas, 2011, was recorded at an escalator on the corner of Flamingo Rd. and Las Vegas Blvd in March of 2011. I slowed the images by a factor of two.
To me Las Vegas is the sum of all American desires, a winner take all wonderland that more resembles a movie set than a city. I love these subjects, revelers descending into an adult playground with promises of wealth, sexual adventure, and mind numbing spectacle. It’s a telling portrait of our culture at this time in history.
