Anna Carey's miniature motel creations capture the essence and spirit of small town America. Those who have taken a road trip across the United States are probably familiar with remote rest stops and motels that seem to appear in the middle of nowhere.

Carey brings this visual to life with miniature building models that are inspired by the Stardust Lodge hotel chain. Her miniature motel replicas are incredibly detailed and are photographed in a way that makes them appear real.

Based in Australia, the artist pays homage to an affordable hotel chain that is present in both the United States and her native home. Each of her piece features a different structural shape, facade color and signage along with surrounding palm tree and street light props.
