Chris Rhodes - Hotel Mermaid Club

Publisher Rvb Books

ISBN 9791090306905

Idea Code 19522

The first photobook by Chris Rhodes is an ode to daily life, wherein he transforms reality to recreate a calming and poetic universe that flirts with melancholia. His use of colours and framing offer nostalgia through iconic references that define the faded glamour of a trivial aesthetic. The series focuses on people and the “self-made landscapes” they create. Although portraiture in a traditional sense is non-existent here, figurative representation is systematically suggested through objects and colours. Making obvious and extreme what otherwise goes unnoticed, it unfolds as a “cabinet of curiosity” gleaned from across eight countries, from Europe to South America.
