At night, standing under a dramatic spotlight, it seems as though these figures are standing in the sanctuary of materialism and dreams. The backgrounds often feature elements of existing shopping mall.

    Effective images highlighting the pervasiveness of today's obsession with materialism. Perfectly captured the coldness of greed without conscience.
