Mall Rats

Big malls.

Big mullets.

Big double denim.

In 1989, Michael Galinsky drove across America and documented malls along the way. He shot about 30 rolls of slide film in malls from Long Island to North Dakota and Seattle.

“It was hard to tell from the images where they were taken, and that was kind of the point. I was interested in the creeping loss of regional differences,” explains Galinsky.

As an incredible time machine these images only getter better as the years roll by. I wonder what happened to ‘Tape World’ in the second last shot?!

Galinsky is trying to turn his photos into a book. You can support him here.
