Malls are not the center of our cultural sphere anymore. They’re not new and shiny. We’ve moved on, and now we have the Internet. – Michael Galinsky

In 1989, Michael Galinsky, then a 20-year-old student, took a month to traverse the U.S. Everywhere he went, he documented the same place: the shopping mall.  The results are now an archive of a vanished world, simultaneously familiar and foreign, trivial and full of meaning.

These pictures are taken from Michael’s book, Malls Across America. See also Michael’s current project – All the Rage.
