Photos of hotel lobbies devoid of people shot late at night or early in the morning by fine art photographer Michael Massaia. The images were shot using large format black and white film and the final prints are toned and tinted gelatin silver prints giving them an eerie, sort of haunted quality. He states:
Over the past sixteen years, I’ve spent the majority of my late nights and early mornings in hotel lobbies throughout Manhattan. Throughout those sleepless nights, I was always taken by how that environment seemed to exist in a constant – no past, no present, no future state. When the guests retired, I was left alone to experience the intimate nature of these places. This portfolio documents those long nights.
