About the project:
This has been an 18 month photography project undertaken by the AS220 DARKROOM. Beginning in December 2005 a team of photographers, which has included several young photographers from the Photographic Memory program, have individually photographed the Dreyfus Hotel. The only request made of each participating artist was that their work be inspired by the Dreyfus Hotel and that their finished work be in the form of still photographs. Both documentary and aesthetic in nature, their images have created a unique record of the transformation of this handsome turn of the 20th century hotel into a vibrant mixed use arts complex that has undergone a stunning historic restoration at the turn of the 21st century.
