Picture This

 

Gray Malin’s fine art photographs are the perfect blend of travel, adventure and daydreams that transport us each time we see them. A bright reminder of the jetset lifestyle, Los-Angeles based Malin’s images give us a glimpse of the high life, whether it’s rows of colorful beach umbrellas in Positano or two cowboys in front of the famed Prada Marfa installation on the plains of Texas. Now, Malin has turned his eye toward the iconic Parker Hotel in Palm Springs in a new series, At The Parker. Just in time to escape our winter doldrums with a welcomed dose of cheer, one of our favorite hotels is now the setting of an extraordinary photo shoot from one of our favorite artists. Malin has reimagined this classic respite with the help of a crew of exotic animals. Room Service features a bell-boy monkey, Pool Boys is a pair of penguins by The Parker’s renowned pool, Afternoon Croquet shows a giraffe in promenade across the court. Each of the photos in the series adds a feeling of humor and brightness that draws us into the beautiful backdrop of one of the desert town’s most definitive spaces. True to stylish form, Malin’s photos provide the perfect wintertime fantasy and we can’t wait to dive in. – Rebecca Treon
