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.
