consumerism revisited

Remember the time when big hair reigned supreme and smoking in public spaces didn’t get you tarred and feathered? Well, filmmaker, musician and photographer Michael Galinsky certainly does. When he was 20 years old, he took a trip across the US and visited countless shopping malls. The result is finally compiled in his new book “Malls Across America“, which works as both, a trip down memory lane to a period of time where people actually met and hung out in person instead of communicating via FaceTime, and a portrait of contemporary architecture and consumer culture.
