Originals owned by the City of Las Vegas, commissioned by the Las Vegas Arts Commission under the Percent for the Arts Ordinance and displayed at City Hall Chamber Gallery.

This picture of the lobby of the former La Concha hotel is just one photo featured in "In Focus" - Photograpy by Jennifer Burkart and Ryan Reason, which gives a new look at some of the most beautiful buildings in Las Vegas.

As we are out-and-about in Las Vegas, we pass by buildings and - most often we don’t give them a second thought, Ugly? Beautiful? They’re just there. Part of the landscape, lost in plain sight. 

Sometimes we need to see the building through the expert eyes of a photographer to sensitize us or wake us up to a particular building’s allure.

With their latest project -- Jennifer Burkart and Ryan Reason have taken bold, colorful images of Las Vegas buildings that help us see these buildings anew.

Their photographs, "In Focus," are on display at the Las Vegas City Hall Chamber Gallery, 495 South Main Street, through November 19.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
