Project led by Silvia Prada. This stirring artist created a series of photographs for our chic&basic Born hotel. For this she chose boys and girls on the street and locked them in a hotel room to "play" while she photographed them. The photographs were taken in the rooms as well as in the restaurant and common areas.
