Editorial Reviews


"A mixture of pragmatism and low-budget glamour is celebrated in Motel Vegas, a photographic homage to Las Vegas's once-thriving but now fast-disappearing motel culture. The book is primarily comprised of Sigman’s photographs, which have been nicely juxtaposed with archive shots." —Pamela Buxton, RIBA Journal
