Clean Rooms, Low Rates is a collaboration between the photographer Brendan Barry and writer Jeff Parker. Over the past few years Barry has logged 22,000 miles driving back and forth across the US, photographing, among other things, empty hotel rooms, and writer Jeff Parker provided fictional texts to go with the photographs.
Barry will be talking about the work and his associated project Broken Roads, and Parker will be reading a selection of the stories that accompany the work.
