Photographer Brian Ulrich’s Copia: Retail, Thrift, and Dark Stores, 2001-2011exhibition shows a decade-long investigation of consumer culture.

Ulrich’s photography is intended to help us learn about our behaviors, habits, comforts, and purpose. The exhibit starts with the events of September 11, 2001 with the “call to spend” by politicians through the financial collapse of 2008 to the present.
