I recently photographed Steve Mullen, owner of Grocery Outlet in Seattle., for Time Magazine. The story highlights several businesses across the US that are either struggling or striving during the recession. Steve’s happens to be one of the fortunate few that is seeing tremendous growth. His store sells overstock grocery items at bargain prices.
I’ve now completed a handful of jobs highlighting our country’s current economic state. It’s a bit depressing, but I’m also optimistic that shifting the way we live will create a better tomorrow. To everyone out there feeling the pinch or the difficulties of being unemployed, all I can say is hang in there. Things will get better.
