The Story:

In 2004, photographer Bill Weedmark toured the city of Toronto with a cool piece of kitsch - the plastic head of Elvis. The series, King Tours Toronto, immortalizes these iconic places, whether torn down or still standing, in a city that is always changing. 

Heartbreak Hotel pairs the icon with the towering presence of the Gladstone Hotel, connecting the twos’ strong presence.

 Weedmark draws on themes of nostalgia, the cult of the celebrity and memory.
