LARIAT MOTEL, FALLON, NEVADA, 2003
By Richard Heeps
This piece is classic Americana 'Sign Porn' photography and Richard Heeps captured it in its original site. The owners since sold the Lariat Motel and donated the 1950's sign with original neon tubing to the Churchill Arts Council.
This piece forms part of Richard Heeps' 'Dream in Colour' Series which features in Richard's 2007 sold out book 'Man's Ruin' which captures Drag Racing, Burlesque, Rockabilly Culture and Americana, a compilation of Richard's photography, shot over seven years. Man's Ruin the Exhibition toured in over twenty museums and galleries in the UK & Europe.
