Photographers BJ and Richeille Formento met exactly a decade ago, while working on a common assignment, and have been partners in both life and work ever since. Together they travel around the world, creating highly inspirational visual series that treat the human persona as prime matter that can be re-shaped through the most unconventional of scenarios. These are usually set in a surreal environment that is saturated in an abundance of contrasting references involving everything from culture and sex to high-fashion and technology.

The most likely view of many a Vegas vacationer is a spinning slot machine and a hotel pool — not photographer Vincent Laforet, who’s view of the city’s crazed casino buildings and animated architecture began at an altitude of 10,800 feet. His series ‘sin city‘ takes the viewer 8,799 feet above the brightly lit-up strip, documenting a vantage point that has likely never been captured in this way before.

The photographer was granted unprecedented access to modernist masterpieces like the Menrad Residence and the recently restored Kaufmann House, which in turn allowed him to play with interior lighting and even include period automobiles in some of the shots.
