IT’S NICE THAT: PETER FUNCH HAS PHOTOGRAPHED THE SAME PEOPLE ON THE SAME STREET FOR NINE YEARS
3 Oct 2017 -
Interview with photographer Peter Funch on his latest book 42nd and Vanderbilt at It’s Nice That: “Peter Funch has photographed the same people on the same street for nine years”
From 2007 to 2016, between 8:30 am and 9:30 am, at the southern corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue in New York City, Danish photographer, Peter Funch photographed passersby during a fragment of their daily routine.
Funch edited down thousands of images to create his book, 42nd and Vanderbilt. A fragment of our routine becomes a meditation on time, mortality, the economy, privacy, and our inner selves.
42nd and Vanderbilt is a social study, full of “small narratives and poetic moments” laced with curiosity. “The flow of the book is like a monologue of sentences – some short and some longer,” says Peter. “It is my point of view as documentarist, voyeur and flaneur.”
