    These Pictures Of American Malls In The 1980s Are Actually Incredible

    I can't believe these pictures are real TBH.

    In 1989 Michael Galinsky was a religious studies major at NYU. He took a photography class and started taking pictures at a local mall for an assignment. When the class finished, his professor encouraged him to continue doing photography, so he went around the country with a friend taking pictures at American malls.

    Those pictures were compiled in a book called Malls Across America, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2011. That book is out of print but copies of it are going for $1,000.

    Now he's back with another book and even more never-before-seen pictures. His new Kickstarter project is called The Decline of Mall Civilization and Michael has shared with us some of his photographs. Enjoy.
