Brian Ulrich's Fluorescent Consumer Hellscapes

I’m a sucker for artistically rendered photographs of consumer behavior, which is why I was so excited to hear that Brian Ulrich has a new series up called Retail. Hi-gloss shops populated by dystopic consumers drenched in fluorescence, framed by an expert hand? Count me in, especially if there’s a BOGO!

Check out these photographs, and then check out these, which crackle with a Kubrickian frisson. Even more of Ulrich’s work can be found on his website.

It’s true, people sadly shopping can be art.
