Las Vegas Carpets

© Chris Maluszynski

Over the years I have found myself in Las Vegas numerous times on various assignments. I have developed some kind of love-hate relationship to this at the same time horrible and fascinating place. To me Las Vegas, usually presents an onslaught on all human senses, an overload of all possible impressions at once. I think it was while trying to save my eyes from all the blinking lights and craziness around me, when I looked down to avoid it all, that I discovered that even the floor was no refuge, and that even more visual madness was to be found there. Since that moment the carpets of Las Vegas have intrigued me, and on every occasion I find myself in Las Vegas I study and photograph them.
