December 6th, 2012-Orlando, Florida.

A hot air balloon flies over a man made lake in Downtown Disney in Disney World. The American Motel, once created to stimulate business travel and tourism across the country, have over the years become home to many who are unable to come up with high deposits to rent apartments or in more recent years have been evicted or foreclosed on in light of the ensuing economic recession.

Florida is home to 1/3 of the country's homeless families, who often times find temporary refuge in the many motels which line strips, ironically such as those surrounding Disney World. These families are one step away from living on the streets, scraping together what they can to get a room or relying on generous charity from organizations or individuals, while they do whatever they can to get back on their feet.

Nadia Shira Cohen was born in Boston in 1977, with a great curiosity for the world and the unknown. Nadia’s creativity was first nurtured by her parents and in an alternative educative environment. Since 2007 Nadia has been based in Rome, Italy where she continues with a creative spirit, to tell stories of the lives of people who interest her and which she compassionately feels the need to expose, working across many nations, cultures and themes.
