Check out DARK STORES, Brian Ulrich’s haunting, yet kind of of uplifting (at least for me) photograph series of abandoned and decaying malls and shops. Powerful stuff. Like a photographic obituary of what is soon to come.

Also worth a look, his more recent series, RETAIL (which Flavorpill aptly calls a Brightly Colored Consumerist Hell.) There are some real gems in this series. (Brian also has the THRIFT series.)

Remarkable how a few photographs can represent the consumer psychosis/hypnosis that drives our society better than any book or article ever could.
