Surreal photos of abandoned malls
Black Friday: The Collapse of the Modern Mall, Lawless takes an up-close-and-personal look at the ancient relic, one of which, Ohio's Randall Park Mall, was one of the largest malls in America during its heyday.
"There's nothing more profound and sobering than being inside an abandoned mall," said Lawless. "It's a powerful symbol of America's economic decline. I used to visit these malls often growing up. I remember eating cotton candy underneath the escalator and the sounds of people laughing and feet shuffling as the gentle sounds of falling water from one of the many fountains surrounded me. This was America."
P.S. Check out more abandoned malls on Lawless' Instagram.
P.P.S. Dead Malls is another awesome site full of great personal stories! :)
