this is what we are

For the past 10 years Brian Ulrich has been working on his project Copia which explores America’s consumerism culture. The project has four distinct series that focus on different aspects of America’s crumbling economy and the boom (and decline) of big box stores. The first two series, Retail and Dark Stores I have shown ya’ll (here & here), so today here is his third series, Thrift as well as a project completely separate from Copia, called Trashcans. Be sure to check out his website,  read this article & go see his work in Behold, America! opening at the San Diego Museum of Art in the Fall.
