I'm documenting thrift culture in America in all 50 states.
I've been a thrifter all my life. When the recession hit a few years ago, I started noticing lots of nicer cars in the parking lots and new faces in the aisles.
It seems thrift shopping has started to appeal to a broader audience. As a photographer, journalist, and culture enthusiast, I became fascinated by not only the people that shop at thrift stores, but by the stories I see in the donated goods available at thrift stores.
I see what you wear, I see where you vacation, who you vote for, what church you go to, even what 5K you ran. Each item tells us a little bit about ourselves, about our neighbors and about America.
