The Holiday Hangover Is Perfected in These Insane Photos
Photographer Jesse Rieser has captured it all in Las Vegas and beyond.
Entertainment 05 Jan 2019

From deflated Christmas decorations to mass Santa meetups, the photographer Jesse Rieser has captured it all in Las Vegas and beyond. That’s because when we think about Christmas, rarely do we think of the eggnog hangover, or how kitschy or tacky the decrations look the week after.

His ongoing photo series “Christmas in America: Happy Birthday, Jesus” shows the downside of Christmas consumerist excess, much of which includes Christmas lights, parties where millenials dress up like JEsus and beyond. As the photographer says, he takes a playful approach.
“I hope people can find a little bit of themselves or their families in these photos, in this humorous, nostalgic way,” he told Artsy this week.
