About this title


day in day out. in the last fifteen years, Rita Barros has unfolded a spectacle lost but still alive in the rooms, doorways, lobby and other secret places of a unique world: the Chelsea Hotel. Barros guides us into the Chelsea theater of solitude, haunted with reveries, emotional ambiguities, fragments of self, hidden desires and emotions, shadows from lost worlds and all powerful semi-alive beings which tend to dissolve into a new dimension: the New York dimension. In Rita Barros' diarist photographs one experiences the artist's distinctive singularity as opposed to the New York 'angst". The "angst" to be. With a penetrating clarity not only does she raise the curtain of the famous Chelsea but illuminates it. It is a privilege for a viewer to discover the secret world of New York's Chelsea Hotel.

From the Author:

This book represents fifteen years of living at the Chelsea Hotel in New York and photographing my neighbors in their own apartments in their own artistic coherence.
