Virtual Exhibition: Cissie Ludlow’s Hotels and Movie Sets
Photographer Cissie Ludlow shot on the movie sets of John Waters’ Desperate Living in Baltimore. In Santa Fe, she shot the De Vargas Hotel which was becoming deserted of human occupants, ahead of the first of several renovations.
It’s very hard to tell the difference between the set of Desperate Living and the De Vargas Hotel, and I shot Desperate Living in 1976. The De Vargas was ’84-’85,” says Cissie Ludlow.
