The photography project, Sorry, We’re Closed, intends to teach people to look at familiar things in a different light:
Say a fisherman gets dropped off at his fishing lake every day and fishes for his living. Imagine if his pole broke on the first cast of the day, and he was left to sit by the lake all day until his ride came back. He would probably start to see the beauty of the lake, it’s ripples… the trees surrounding it, and their reflections. Up until now the lake was just a utility to him, a means to live, but remove the original purpose for visiting that lake, and it takes on a whole different meaning.
What if you take consuming out the the equation for visiting a store?
