Photographer, Warren Bates snapped photos of desert landscapes at night and used abandoned buildings, vehicles and old signs as a way to highlight the places people usually passed by. Warren Bates took his own life in April 2010 and now a gallery in his honor is on display at the Left of Center Gallery in North Las Vegas. Bate's sister Susana organized the exhibit and will donate proceeds from the sale of photographs to suicide awareness. We talk with Susana Bates about her brothers work and how living through a family suicide takes its toll.
