When it comes to Las Vegas, the wild and raucous Sin City holds a bit of a reputation. But during the day, off the flashing Vegas strip, there is a different side to this desert city. Bold signs. Bright design. Breathtaking art. Color is everywhere in Downtown Las Vegas, and no better person to help capture the magic than Andrew Kuttler, the Instagram famous photographer known for bringing the bright.
We asked Andrew to explore the side of the strip where W Las Vegas calls home, using his eye for design to show off how the Downtown neighborhood is bringing awesome art, great sights, and real culture to LV. “What I love about Las Vegas,” says the photographer who has found fame in his unique style, “is that although we have preconceived notions of the city like gambling, drinking, bright lights, etc., there is still so much spontaneity and secret spots to be found.”
Follow Andrew’s photo diary of his extra-colorful day in Downtown Vegas, and what inspired him throughout the city.
