The Summer of 1989
Photo credit: Michael Galinsky
Moving westward across the country in 1989 photographer Michael Galinsky captured these vignettes in malls from Long Island to North Dakota to Seattle. Last year he scanned in a selection of his photos and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to turn the collection into a book.
Shot with inexpensive equipment, the images have a simple, gritty feel that further enhances the sense of distance between that summer and today. What's striking about the photos when taken together is how indistinguishable the communities are. Aside from our iPhones geo-tagging images, would the same be true today?
