Alfredo Oliva Delgado is not just a great photographer. His texts on how we perceive and act on photography have been a reference for many, including myself.

In this series, the protagonists are the memories of the emotions experienced in some of the hotel rooms that he has visited.

“”Hotel Stories” is a series of images taken in those moments of serenity that hotel rooms give us. Moments that break the hustle and bustle of the journey and favour a state of mind that enables a more attentive look and more connected with our inner self. Intimate contexts in which time passes slowly and when ideas are incubated and visions are woven. Some hotels predispose us in a special way to this inner contemplation through their lights, colours and atmospheres. They are hotel rooms that invite us to take the camera and capture banal scenes so that they disclose the beauty they hide.

This is not a planned serie of images conceived as a visual support for any intellectualised discourse or one that tries to make the viewer think deeply, but rather simple images with which I want to share with the viewer the emotion I experienced in different places and moments.”
