Dark Stores


Photo: Brian Ulrich


Photographer Brian Ulrich has spent the last few year examining “the peculiarities and complexities of the consumer-dominated culture in which we live.” His latest project captures the beauty and sadness of empty stores and failed businesses.
Most recently a new project began in 2008 entitled Dark Stores, Ghost Boxes and Dead Malls. In the recent economic downturn some of the very stores I photographed at the beginning of the project are now emptied and laid barren in the hulking empty architecture of the big box, mall or store.

I saw the six flags mall and instantly searched to see if it had actually closed. Gotta give them credit for getting through 2 foreclosures.

For those who would like to see a mall stuck in the 80's, here ya go:
