As a photographer, I have always been drawn to the human element of my subjects. So when I decided to visit Las Vegas, I knew that I wanted to capture the unique atmosphere of the city's casinos and the people who frequent them. I spent my time in Las Vegas making portraits of the players, the locals, and the tourists who come here for a dream, for a party, or sometimes, for desperation. My project, which I called "Cash Out," aimed to document the city of gambling with a documentary and cinematic approach. I was inspired by the interiors of the casinos and played with the available light from the machines to capture the gestures, feelings, and scenes of life that take place there, from the early morning to the late night, 24 hours of gaming, cocktails, light, and colors. What I discovered in Las Vegas was a world of contrasts. The city is known for its glitz, glamour, and excess, but it is also a place where people come to escape the mundanity of their daily lives, to take a chance on their luck, and to live out their wildest dreams. As I made my way through the crowded casinos, I saw the full range of emotions that the city inspires in its residents and visitors, from hope and excitement to disillusionment and despair.
