the media is constantly bombarding us with images…

who hasn’t heard that sentence before? i’ll admit, i’ve said it quite a few times myself.  it is something that i think is very true, and decided to further explore on my first walk. 

advertisements are everywhere:

 

“The average American is exposed to about 3000 advertising messages a
day, and globally corporations spend over $620 billion each year to
make their products seem desirable and to get us to buy them.”
Union of Concerned Scientists Website

 

so, i walked from my old house on university to the center for creative photography and took photographs of all the advertisements i saw, these are some of them…

i see these things on such a regular basis, they’ve just become apart of my surroundings. i never really thought about the fact that they are meant to influence me to buy something or lure me into a space. clearly i need to start paying more attention.
