Richard Renaldi is one of my favorite photographers. Among the stacks of photography books I own, my autographed copy of Renaldi’s Fall River Boys remains one of most treasured, and his portraiture has inspired some of my own work on so many levels.
Richard and his partner Seth have traveled the world as a result of Richard’s photography as well as Charles Lane Press, the art/photography publishing company they established together. And that’s how his Hotel Room Portraits came to be: Richard has been taking a portrait of himself and Seth in every hotel room they have occupied since 1999. I love this series.
Below are some of my favorites of the collection. You can also see the whole series on Richard Renaldi’s website. [Click any to enlarge.]
