The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification
A must-have for anyone with a passion for shopping carts and a love of the great outdoors.
In "The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America" author Julian Montague has created an elaborate classification system of abandoned shopping carts, accompanied by photographic documentation of actual stray cart sightings. These sightings include bucolically littered locations such as the Niagara River Gorge (where many a cart has been pushed to its untimely death) and mundane settings that look suspiciously like a suburb near you.
Working in the naturalist's tradition, the photographs depict the diversity of the phenomenon and carry a surprising emotional charge; readers inevitably begin to see these carts as human, at times poignant in their abandoned, decrepit state, hilariously incapacitated, or ingeniously co-opted. The result is at once rigorous and absurd, enabling the layperson to identify and classify their own cart spottings based on the situation in which they were found.

The photos animated these carts to an almost biological level. Abandoned, abused, pressed into servitude, these carts clearly suffered every kind of abuse. Some were cases of mass cartocide, but most look eerily lonely. I felt sad for them. They deserved better than they got.
Worth the look.
