Item description for Carsten Meier: Public Parking by Cindy Gates...
One byproduct of our global car culture is the proliferation of parking lots. By looking closely at these spaces that we usually ignore (unless we're searching for a parking spot), Carsten Meier, with these photographs, finds mystery in the mundane. Are they a real convenience or a kind of manipulation? In the empty parking lots of recently closed or just-built shopping centers, or in the vertigious view of a city over the railing of a multistory deck, Meier depicts, as Stephen Shore has done before him, ordinary emblems of our extraordinary mobility.
