San Francisco-based photographer Richard Stultz recently shot a series of photographs titled, ‘Choices.’ As its name suggests, the work explores the options that consumers are confronted with in everyday life. It captures an unexpected beauty in environments often thought of as banal -- a grocery store, for instance.

Richard Stultz avoids grande critiques of consumerism or capitalism in his series and instead aims to capture interesting visual aspects of everyday life that go frequently unnoticed in the contemporary urban landscape.

It would be hard to deny the similarity between Richard Stultz ‘Choices’ series and Andy Warhol’s ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans.’ Both works reveal how artificial, man-made products are almost as ubiquitous as leaves and clouds.
