Alone in a hotel room

Photofilter: in a college history of photography class I remember seeing some slides from a color photographer who took pictures of lonely-looking people in hotel rooms. One in particular was a man, fully clothed, sitting on the edge of a bed in what was obviously a mid-price motel room. There was a sort of pale green cast to the shot. Anybody know who the photographer is?

Something from Philip-Lorca diCorcia's Hollywood series?

Obviously, the man in the shot in the website has neither a green cast nor clothes, but Nan Goldin immediately sprang to my mind.

Larry Sultan? I know theres some fully clothed sitting on the bed in a green room this series, Pictures from Home. Not a hotel room though, just a house in Florida.

Jessica Wynne?
Any idea of dates of the photographer? How long ago was the class?
