It is late, decided to have a quick nightcap at the hotel having checked in earlier that morning. Hotel security is curious and knocks on the door to inquire as to what's going on, given our surroundings we suspect that maybe we have broken "the too many dark people in the room code." More privacy is attained depending on what floor you are on, if you are in the penthouse suite you could be pretty much assured of your privacy, if you were on the 6th or 10th floor there would be a knock on the door.
This photograph series entitled "The bed" again uses this idea of an absent person, however this time the bed looks untouched and as though it has not been slept in. I also like the text panel underneath which Lorna Simpson uses quite often in her photographs to link a narrative to an image.
