In this intriguing lottery photo series, the audience gets to see some of the convenience stores that sold winning lottery tickets and the stories of what the owners and clerks did with the bonus gift.
The lottery photo series takes the audience on a trip across America and inside the stores that have changed people’s lives because of the million-dollar lottery tickets. With shelves packed with goods, we get to intimately know the people who give out the lottery tickets and how they spent the money from the bonus.

Bresler’s quest took her across the Commonwealth, where she traveled to more than 50 stores across 14 states.
