Is This Place Great or What

Link: photo-eye

Brian Ulrich’s book is great, and a real downer. If you resisted President Bush’s exhortations to shop America back to health after the events of 9-11-01, you may already be in line with the photographer. His Copia series, dating from 2001–2011, makes up the meat of this book. With mordant glee, the photographs insinuate that a decade of shopping has made us no better off; in fact, the rock we’ve been trying to shoulder up hill is flattening us.
