Mike's Bar-B-Que - Memphis, Tennessee c2004
Morning in America. The “greasy spoon.” This Memphis diner—now defunct⎯is located geographically and spiritually in the middle of America. Memphis is a melting pot city on the western fringe of Tennessee, and port of call along the Mississippi River. The central ‘common man’ reads his, now obsolete, PAPER newspaper. This image examines opposing currents of timelessness and obsolescence.
