About The Work

In 2005, mere weeks before the demolition of the Ambassador Hotel (and the Cocoanut Grove), Robert Polidori captured the faded grandeur of one of Los Angeles's most legendary establishments. Working closely with Polidori, The Lapis Press selected six images from this series that documented both the beauty of the original architecture and decay of the property since its closure in 1989. Polidori shot on large format color negative film to capture a palpable sense of history in these abandoned spaces. The now extinct rooms he photographed become powerful testaments to the impact of time on even the most staid architecture.
