Anastasiia Chorna’s 24/7 McDonald’s series came about when the photographer needed somewhere to be late at night and the fast food joint was the only place that was open all day and night. The particular location for her series was in New York’s Lower East Side.
The series gives off a warmth to the commercial joint and depicts it as a safe haven for many. One can imagine it housing the tagged graffiti culture, the conversations taking place or not, the deep fried something smells emanating, and the comfort with the familiarity of it all.
