Shot with a Diana camera, “Alamo Plaza Hotel Courts” represents McCabe’s focus on photographing “temporary, obsolete, abandoned, and derelict sites” as well as his interest in mixing image and text, color and scale, light and form. The artist employs analog technologies as a counter to the digital technology favored by many photographers today.
