Photographing Unfinished Las Vegas
Photographing Unfinished Las Vegas

AIR DATE: January 4, 2012

Las Vegans Michael Monson and Tony Flanagan wanted to capture a part of Vegas that locals may ignore and tourists are oblivious to.  They went out and photographed some of the largest construction projects in the Valley that never finished like the Echelon.  But, Monson and Flanagan don't show us photos of delapidated buildings, instead they somehow bring these projects back to life with unique photographic skill.  They almost bring the images to life.  The exhibit, To The Neon Gods They Made is on display at the Winchester Cultural Center through the end of January.
