Venice and Mass Consumption

What better place to explore artistic objects than Venice? For the photo series I wanted to explore how objects are sold as art or cultural property, especially with store windows full of anything you could ever dream of. Of course there are many, many beautiful things, but I couldn't help but get overwhelmed when simply browsing through things! With these pictures I was trying to share how I felt while walking down the streets of the city. While a single person may only want to purchase one thing, the variety and selection available in the stores made for an adventurous photo-taking session. A store in its own way can be artistic, and showing differences between one or two photographed objects and a whole flurry of things pushes us to wonder which one we prefer.
