Jay Diers is at it again! The young photographer from Iowa took a chance looking into American motel rooms and surprises us anew with unusually intimate, warm-hearted and yet in-your-face portraits. The bored farm boys of the American Midwest seem as if theyve just been waiting for their chance to finally show themselves to the world! And so they pose, beguile with their young bodies and seem to be saying just one thing Take me! But the photos never seem blatant or exploitative thanks to Diers respectful and dignified handling of his models. This is a magnificent portrait of American youth!
