A NYC Photographer Spends 9 Years Capturing People on Their Way to Work, and the Results Are Eye-Opening

Danish photographer Peter Funch has been taking photographs of the same place at the same time for 9 years. Later on he found that he captured the same person a few times and that person looked nearly identical to the pictures made a few days apart. That finding turned into an amazing photo project named “42nd and Vanderbilt.”

We at smartzune.com found it quite fascinating and want to share these Deja vu images with you.

These pictures cover the period from 2007 to 2016 and were taken from 8:30 to 9:30 in the morning in New York City. Editing the shots, the photographer found out that daily shooting in the same place, at the same time, yields a surprising result: you see the same people repeating the same rituals over years.

Street photography can be unpredictable and full of surprises. We probably don’t even realize that day after day, and year after year we do the same thing, eat the same food, drink coffee from the same shop, have the same haircut, and even wear the same colored clothes.
