Adam Raphael’s Do Not Disturb is a sensual series of racially diverse male models lounging, bathing, and dining amid the lavish interiors and luxurious finishes of the finest hotels in America. In the tradition of Raphael’s highly acclaimed Room Service, every page of this collection of all new work smolders with the heat of closed-door encounters.
The young men of Do Not Disturb are models of the highest caliber whose perfect physiques are revealed in Raphael’s photographs. Because the models are photographed individually, the viewer is invited to get to know each model intimately.
All of the models, who are both clothed and unclothed, are photographed in repose—playful, and carefree in the privacy of their hotel suites.
Escape into a world of extravagant, immaculately constructed fantasy, with Do Not Disturb.
