The days of hot-sheet motels, where lovers could meet for some afternoon delight, are behind us for the most part. But model/designer Todd Sanfield (above) lets us fantasize in Motel/Hotel, the new limited-edition photo book by lesman Kevin McDermott. All the images in the hardcover coffee-table tome were shot over two days in McDermott’s home turf of Detroit. Well, Sanfield certainly gets our motor revving!
Says McDermott: “I think there is a feeling of freedom associated with hotels and motels. People can act out in ways that they may not while in their own environments. They are sexual spaces—even if its a dive cheap motel, there is a certain sexiness there.”
