The photographic work of Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé is truly unique as it transforms everyday surroundings into artistic expression. The Benoit Paillé Cheap Motel photographic series is cheap and cheerful, while still showcasing the typical washed-out and run-down aesthetic often seen with motels. Each of the photographs is of a different motel, and yet each photograph fits together with the last.

The motels featured in the Benoit Paillé Cheap Motel series all have elements of bright colors-- be it a red door or a blue wall. Portions of grass, concrete and puffy clouds accompany each of the differently colored hotels. The way each shot is composed allows the viewer to see the whole motel scene as if he or she were really seeing it in person! Stats for Cheerful Motel Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
