The Florian Ritter 'Vending Machine' Series dispenses a lifestyle shock. The German photographer and creative director Florian Ritter chronicles the interesting spots of vending machines. Now based in Shanghai, Ritter was inspired to capture the expansive amount of vending machines he found in Japan. Yet as Ritter describes on his website through these photographs he, "discovered how much more true you can discover a country and its places."

Ritter worked on the project for only a week, but discovered vending machines were found in remote spots outside big cities. The dulled-out background help to emphasize the strange-spotted machines and make the ethos of the series even more evident.

It is interesting to think how this project would transpire on a worldwide level, depicting the variations of vending machines by country.
