The daily struggle of life is the same with every person. No matter what level of society you are in, what job you do, or where you are, everybody does their daily grind to make a living. The journey from your home to your workplace becomes the final walk of solitude and keeping to yourself until you are hoarded with work for the rest of the day.
This daily process is something that caught the attention of photographer Peter Funch. Each morning from 8.30 until 9.30 am for 9 long years, this Danish photographer stood at the south corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue. The goal was to study and document commuters on the way to their work. Although this photographer didn’t know them personally, he has shared their moments, emotions, and the brief moment they passed his corner from 2007 to 2016. All this time, years, and photos compile to create the project “42nd and Vanderbilt“. We got you a glimpse of his project which is now available as a book. Scroll down to check out more.
Peter has captured amazing moments of these people’s walk to their respective jobs. They show different sorts of emotions, attire, speed, and concerns on their walk. Although this photographer stands without talking to them, their story is documented on his camera.
This awesome photographer wanted to capture a random part of people’s lives and keep capturing the same event for years. That is the reason he chose the corner he stood in, nothing special about it except for the people being themselves. So, check out his amazing book that is a result of years of hard work and emotion through the links above.
