Alcohol anonymous

"An employee (who wished to remain anonymous) tends to a customer at American Fork's State Liquor Agency, Tuesday, Feb.2, 2010. The legislature may be closing the liquor store."

Note I said “alcohol anonymous” not “alcoholics anonymous.”

Great image? No. Ironic? Yes.

Had to shoot in a liquor store, in Utah County mind you (not many people drink alcohol here), where not one employee would allow me to photograph their face.

Needless to say, it was an interesting hour hanging out in a liquor store where everyone was most likely one of the following: ashamed, terrified, embarrassed, or inebriated that they were either selling or were purchasing booze.

Classic Utah County. Really is.

...creative solution to a hard situation. I like it a lot, and I'm impressed by the fact that you managed to get them to trust you to make this image.

Interesting. I wonder why they get that type of job in an environment where they are likely to be looked down upon. Need for money?
