Decline of Mall Civilization
From Detroit, to Chicago, to South Dakota and further, Michael Galinsky visited, photographed and told the story of some fifteen malls. In this book, a follow up to "Malls Across America", he recounts the heyday of the “mall culture” that reigned in the 80s and 90s, in Ronald Reagan’s America. With the rise of the Internet, shops and malls have often been reduced to ghost towns. Looking at these images now is not only a reminder of things gone by, but a cautionary tale, told through raw and surprising images, of a past that will not return.
