Croft
I have been visiting Leicester for my work for some time and during 2007-8 for about 15 months I stayed at a hotel/B&B called Croft Hotel. As I wanted 2 or 3 nights every week for quite a long time, I did a deal with the manager - for a good rate he could put me in any of the rooms, but would upgrade me if possible. Then I started to make pictures as I became fascinated by the details - the place was quite dated and a little run down, to be fair. The evidence of the years and the stream of people who had occupied the rooms interested me. So we agreed that over time I would get to stay in all the rooms in the place - 21 rooms, with no number 13. These images are the result, which I also want to make into an artist's book.
