From an edition of 1,900 copies (The Works of Edward Ruscha, p. 169). Light edge wear and smudging. These photos, all taken at low-rent Las Vegas hotels, "speak to the notion that fantasies of sun and surf are available to everyone, from motel patrons paddling around in those run-down but beautifully blue swimming pools, to multimillionaire movie stars who have the real thing in their backyards," while nevertheless expressing "an ambivalence about the Southern Californian lifestyle." (Alexandra Schwartz, Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles, p. 162) From the estate of actor Margot Kidder.
