Summer goes on just a little bit longer here on Interiorator! When I look outside, I see a cloudy sky over the skyline of Rotterdam – but when I close my eyes, it’s a balmy late afternoon in Palm Springs.
1 – Nancy Baron – The Good Life > Palm Springs
Aaah…the good life – in Palm Springs, no less! Photographer Nancy Baron (and I’m quoting here) likes to discover and document, without judgement, the exotic subculture next door, aiming to capture and celebrate the majesty in worlds that could easily be overlooked, seen as mundane, or otherwise misunderstood. I’ve been a big fan of Nancy Baron ever since I discovered here work on Slate.com a few weeks ago and thought today would be a good day to share her work with you.
2 – Stefanie Klavens
More Americana! More, more more! Stefanie Klavens’ work(again, I’m quoting here) focuses on the importance of place and documentation of visual aspects of the American social landscape. Her photographs encourages deeper thought into subject matter often taken for granted: historic single-screen movie palaces, disappearing drive-in theaters, and the quirky individuality often displayed in private homes and places of business. I’ve selected some of my favorite interior and / or summer pictures by Klavens – they make me want to jump on the next plane across the Atlantic!
3 – The Las Vegas Neon Boneyard
And as a big finale of this all-American blogpost, let me show you these pictures I found this morning on a great blog called Writing through the Fog. I remember the Las Vegas neon boneyard from a movie I once saw (anyone remember which one?) but never thought this place actually existed. If you’re going to Vegas and are looking for something out of the ordinary, the Neon Museum might just be your thing. Oh and by the way, I’ve created a special neon signs board on Pinterest – you can find it right here.
