Every Liquor Store in Red Deer (2011/2014)

All photographs were made during a few hours on December 30, 2011, in Red Deer, Alberta.  In 1993, Alberta was the first province in Canada to privatize the sales, storage, and distribution of alcohol.  As a result, a large number of small "mom and pop" liquor stores opened across the province.  During the proceeding years, many of these shops were taken over by larger chains.  The liquor store-as-typology stands at an intersection of a particular social geography and public policy vis a vis public goods and capital interests.  Thus, "Every Liquor Store in Red Deer" is a study of surfaces represented, and produced, by photographs.
