Same difference: Photographs of 32 hotel rooms in 32 countries reveal few variations
von Rebecca Powers
"Enter Swiss photographer Roger Eberhard, who spent a year documenting 32 Hilton hotel rooms in 32 countries. The result: a postcard, of sorts, in the form of “Standard”, a book that’s as quiet as a readied room. [...] Like the photographs, the book’s essays examine the ubiquity of one-night homes. Does the sameness serve a purpose, much like the practicality of a travel wardrobe? Or does it reflect a growing global monotony?"
