The Store Documentary

For the past couple months I have been working hard on producing a body of work for a series of mine called The Store Documentary. I went to several stores and malls such as Kmart, Meijer, Macy’s, the Westland Mall and the Polaris Mall. I photographed the run down, closed stores and then I photographed the newer stores that are still in business. I created diptychs to place the images side by side as close as possible to show how different something can be after time of wear and tear. This project stems from one which I had worked on earlier on in the semester about just the Kmarts. At the time there was snow on the ground and I took this opportunity to re shoot the images along with many more. Which one is the most the most poisonous, ย in your opinion, the new or the old?
