Proliferating the Sunset Strip in Las Vegas are groups of people dressed up as movie characters, working on a photos for tips basis. For some it’s a full time job, others are homeless or illegal immigrants. Up close the costumes are threadbare and worn, held together with gaffer tape in places. It all works as a metaphor for Vegas itself, a veneer of glitz and glamour in the hotels and casinos, but walk just a block back from the strip and you’re confronted by abandoned lots of failed dreams.
