Chicago based photographer Brian Ulrich is showing at Julie Saul Gallery. Go look at some photos and say hi to him. The opening is Jan 4th.. ring in the New Years with a look at consumerism.

The Copia is a long-term photographic examination of the pecularities and complexities of the consumer-dominated culture in which we live. Through large scale photographs taken within both the big-box retail stores and the thrift shops that house our recycled goods, Copia explores not only the everyday activities of shopping, but the economic, cultural, social, and political implications of commercialism and the roles we play in self-destruction, over-consumption, and as targets of marketing and advertising.
