99 Cent Store Gursky RE-DO.

Here I have duplicated Gursky's seminal "99 Cent " without photo-retouching. The composition is used to question Gursky and his methods -- what is Gursky trying to tell us? Why? And ... why? This composition adds more hanging dangly things to create a balance between the horizontal and vertical elements, an integral part of the work missing from Gursky's composition. Gursky's work challenges us to consider the perspective of the viewer, and the mis-en-scene of the duality of the encompassing sangfroid hourly.
