The Las Vegas Diaries explores the difficulties of living the western dream in Las Vegas – a city where consumption of experience is extreme. It is also a collaboration with writer Paul Davies who is the subject of many of the photos and also author of the writing that documents ten years of visiting Las Vegas as a University lecturer on student field trips and as a tourist. Julie Cook joins this account five years in. They were married in Las Vegas in 2001.
