VEGAS AND SHE / STEFANIE MOSHAMMER
''The city is like a fast pumping heart and this heart does not only give love. It's a place full of mystery, wonder and myth. The only point they meet is the stillness of truth,'' she says. There are a lot of girls featured in Moshammer's work, dancing and teasing a men's desire. The women who work in Vegas profit by creating an artificial identity, an idealized version of men's desire, based upon illusion and fantasy. Las Vegas is an ambigious space and visiting this capital is often a form of escapism.
Moshammer does not try to provide us with a 'realistic' portrayal of Vegas, nor the women who inhabit the fantastic world inside this desert city. She tries instead to capture the fragments of life that make up this strange wonderland.
