Brian Ulrich

Brian Ulrich is a New York born photographer working with ideas of consumer culture and detritus. He largely focuses on the left behind and leftover architecture of a consumer culture moving forward. Thrift shops, abandoned malls, empty storefronts are all photographed and build his narrative about loneliness, commercialism and the roles we play in self-destruction, over-consumption, and as targets of marketing and advertising.   His photographs portraying contemporary consumer culture reside in major museum collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography.
