One byproduct of our global car culture is the proliferation of parking lots. By looking closely at these spaces that we usually ignore (unless we're searching for a parking spot), Carsten Meier, with these photographs, finds mystery in the mundane. Are they a real convenience or a kind of manipulation? In the empty parking lots of recently closed or just-built shopping centers, or in the vertigious view of a city over the railing of a multistorey deck, Meier depicts, as Stephen Shore has done before him, ordinary emblems of our extraordinary mobility.
