Hyers + Mebane's Vegas series, taken in May 2008, was made on the four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard in Clark County, Nevada commonly referred to as the strip. The photographs were made in a range of casinos -- from the oldest remaining casino on the strip, the Flamingo, to the new complexes such as the Bellagio, Caesar's Palace, and the ESPN Center.
