A Vacation Photo Album of the Fabulous Las Vegas.
Photographs by Mauro D'Agati. Edited by Rebecca Kanengiser.
Ahrens Editions, 2011. 168 pp., 108 illustrations, 6½x9".
Shot in April 2010 during a ten-day
stay, Less Vegas is Italian photographer
Mauro D’Agati’s first American
photo-project. It obliquely traces
the lives of 12 Vegas residents that
D’Agati met on his vacation, playing
out their peculiar stories against
the city’s peculiar character. By
focusing on the long-term residents
of the notoriously transient Las
Vegas, D’Agati locates a lesser known
side of the city, in lives built
entirely around casinos. Linda is one
such protagonist of Less Vegas,
described by D’Agati in his lengthy
postscript: Linda was married in
Vegas’s own “Little White Chapel” 14
years ago. She and her husband live
in the Siegel Suites with a stray gray
cat that they stumbled upon in the
street. Linda may be unemployed,
but she ‘works’ the slot machines
like a CEO. Through such characters,
D’Agati uncovers the textures
of Vegas ordinarily obscured by
neon and glitz.
