Photo Series of the Day: Chris Maluszynski’s “Las Vegas Carpets” series explores the tapestry of Sin City through the notoriously kaleidoscopic carpets of its casinos.
“The carpets definitely play a big part in keeping the town as surreal as it is,” said Maluszynski by e-mail. “Thought has been given to the carpeting by people who want to create this special atmosphere, [one] that defines Vegas as a gambling city.” […]
As he trod the psychedelic multilevel-loop carpets of Vegas, Masulynzski’s thoughts flashed back to the Vegas experienced and described by Hunter S. Thompson: “You’re in a prison of sensory impressions. I was trying to rest my eyes, and I looked at the carpet and thought, Shit, I can’t do it there, either,” Maluszynski recently told The New Yorker.
This makes me feel nostalgic.
