I took this shot of a deserted mall a few weeks ago. Probably this mall has been earmarked to be torn down for a newer mall or an upmarket residential project. The airconditioning had been turned off, tenants had vacated, elevators were not running; only some dim lighting remained and the stale smell was overpowering.
I was not planning on sharing this shot until I attended a film screening of Hilla and Bernd Becher yesterday, a photographer couple, that specialized in capturing industrial buildings and structures facing abandonment [such as iron and steel plants facing closure after nearby coal mines were exhasuted]. Not that my today's post is anywhere close [either in concept or execution]. But the minimalism and stark documentary of their photographs urged me to post this.
