The Marsh Supermarket in Greencastle, Indiana opened in 1986. It closed under Marsh’s discount banner, LoBill Foods, in 2006 shortly after Sun Capital Partners purchased the company.
“Abandoned Marsh” was my project to stylistically document the Marsh supermarkets closed by Sun Capital Partners, an investment firm that owned the home-grown company for the final decade of its eighty-six year history. The last Marsh supermarket closed in 2017.
Instead of taking pictures of the buildings, I decided to create 18×24 vector files in Adobe Illustrator, focusing on the complexity of their angles and how shadows and highlights interacted with them.
