​John R Van Beekum’s Night Hawk, Hub Beauty Supply andRaffles Hotel​ create a palpable sense of longing and transport the viewer to an uncertain place and time.
As the viewer studies the group of three photographs, you start to lose your footing in this world ​and wonder, "Where is this place?' And then, 'When is this?" ​ Then you walk through the door that Van Beekum has opened ​and let the environment surround you.
