Prairie Modernist Noir 29 (2018 / 2020)

Oh, yes. This is the future of the phone booth. Maybe it’s everybody’s big box future.

Okay—Brandon, Winnipeg, Flin Flon...yes, Winnipeg. The Walmarts will always have a phone booth. It’s always in order and tidy. What was surprising to me was that Walmarts do not all look alike—I hadn’t realized that. This one is in Winnipeg at 3655 Portage Avenue, and there’s a garbage can close by. Before long yet another problem eventually emerged: I became obsessed with Walmarts. I wished I could photograph every Walmart in Manitoba.

And you know, when you get obsessed, they don’t all look alike anymore.
