J. Bennett Fitts: No Lifeguard on Duty

J. Bennett Fitts: No Lifeguard on Duty at Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. "...For this stunningly calm and exotic series, J. Bennett Fitts uses the qualities of light to create a unified vision of a man-altered landscape: abandoned pools. J. Bennett Fitts has traveled over 20,000 miles around the United States from Salton Sea, California and the Southern California Inland Empire to Arkansas and West Virginia to photograph relics of America’s roadside past. He expresses the contrast between the of the period when these motels were new and attracted the Great American family touring the U.S.A and their modern state: attracting only budget travelers and sites for prostitution and drug use, perhaps even manufacture."
