Lot Report


Standing in a former border town of the southern prairies, the American Hotel was comfort to weary travelers and the perfect place for cross-border rendezvous, now standing defiant of its own mortality and still concealing its secrets.

About the Artist:
An award-winning photographer, Richard Collens is a Calgary-based lifelong photographer, with a desire for adventure, road trips and finding the beauty in nature and in otherwise mundane surroundings. Although Richard has had a camera in his hand since he was young, he really started taking things seriously later in life, focusing more on the quality and artistry of his photographs. ​
