Roy's Motel


Giclée print on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl paper.

Size 30x20 cm without white border.

"I photographed Roy's Motel during one of my road trips through Amboy, California. Shortly after moving to New York City in 2008, I wanted to explore more of my new homeland. This beautiful Googie architectural landmark dates back to 1938 and is characterized by futuristic and striking design elements inspired by the emerging aerospace, science, and technology of that time."

Roy’s Motel is a historic rest stop along the iconic Route 66, also known as the 'Main Street of America.' This legendary highway, which was the main east-west connection in the country for a long time, started in Chicago and ended in Los Angeles.
