“Aisle 14”

2020

 

The image is a picture of big-box store in Michigan called Meijers. It is one of the places where I do my grocery shopping. I chose this image mainly for formal reasons. I like the repetition and lines in the photo. The emphasis is not on the COVID masks but it could have easily been. The masks are minimized and instead the focus is on the vastness of the space. The high ceilings and the cold industrial architecture. The masked people at the bottom of the image are almost afterthoughts. The image is cold and impersonal much like the experience of shopping in this large building.
