In her in-depth exploration of Las Vegas, young Austrian photographer Stefanie Moshammer created an extensive series of photographs which were compiled into this photobook published by FOTOHOF edition. Las Vegas is a ‘Disneyland for adults’, an entirely artificial city nicknamed Sin City set in the Mojave Desert and once renowned as a Mafia stronghold, its existence a sort of brightly coloured parallel universe alongside the rest of America. Las Vegas is an epicentre of oddities, bereft of evolved urban culture or traditional legacy, a settlement agglomeration doubling up as a gigantic amusement park. And it was here, in this controversial setting, that Stefanie Moshammer spent two months with her camera working on ‘Vegas and She’, a fascinating – and darkly disturbing – portrait of this art(ificial) city and its inhabitants.
