Stefanie Moshammer. Vegas and She
For »Vegas and She«, Moshammer shadowed the workers in the city’s omnipresent adult entertainment industry, the strippers from the clubs along the boulevards and their less illustrious side streets. Vegas emerges before us as a city of illusion and pretense built on the desert sand, a place where even the bodies of the residents gradually submit to the imperative of beautiful semblance and surfaces—pink Cadillacs, green marble, the mirrors in hotel elevators—are not manifestations of what lies underneath but the screens on which dreams are projected. With »Vegas and She« Moshammer was in the selection for the ViennaPhotoBookAward 2014.
