Choices: Photos by Richard Stultz
Photos of retail displays that seem ordinary but are visually compelling for their organization.
Beyond the astounding quantity and selection, retail displays are often visually interesting with striking design elements, color, and repetitive patterns. But as we shop and try to find the perfect product, we often don’t see the perverse beauty of these choices. The urban landscape with its man-made structures confronts us all the time. We live, work, and play in it, but it’s so ordinary that we often don’t really see it. Our eyes take it in, but nothing registers internally, perhaps because the urban landscape seems rather unremarkable. With so many of these urban visual images continually flowing through our consciousness, we don’t see that there is more there. My interest is in making the unremarkable remarkable.
