11 Never-Before-Seen Photos Of Malls In The Early ’90s

AKA the glory days (of malls).

In 1989 a twenty-year-old photographer named Michael Galinsky drove across the country to photograph malls.

Starting in the winter of 1989 with the Smith Haven Mall in Garden City Long Island, Michael photographed malls from North Carolina to South Dakota, Washington State and beyond. The photos he took capture life in these malls as it began to shift from the shiny excess of the 1980s towards an era of slackers and grunge culture.

The photos are featured in a new book called Malls Across America

And lucky for us all, the following 11 photos have never been seen before and provided to BuzzFeed exclusively. Check it out. Also pre-order the book here.
