2 of the hotels in my Viva Las Vegas collage, the Frontier and the Stardust, have seen the wrecking ball. A third, the Sahara, is set to be demolished in May. I’d like to go back to get a decent photo of it (not from a gas station) and also to get another shot at Vegas (pun intended) the right way. Not running, not taking photos from a moving car, but taking the time to do it well.
Will another collage come out of this?
Do I need your help?
But I’m not comfortable receiving without giving back.
The purpose of my collage work is to preserve through photography our memories and the places where those memories reside. I want to help protect those places, or at the very least pieces of them, for future generations.
I will be giving 5% of your donation to The Neon Museum so they can continue to do amazing work caring for Vegas’s historic signage so it can be seen and appreciated long after it’s been taken down.
And there’s more!
I will be posting a gallery of photos after I return. To thank you for your donation, you will get a print of a photo of your choosing. I’m not exactly sure what size the prints will be yet since I’m plotting a little bit of a surprise (yay surprises!), but I guarantee something cool that you’ll want to frame. Or at the very least put on your fridge.
BUT I’M NOT DONE!
Everyone who donates will be entered in a drawing to receive a matted 8 x 10 print of the new Vegas collage that will be created after this trip.
And finally, like my trip to San Francisco, I will also be keeping you updated with blog posts as well as taking some video along the way.
