Peter Funch is a New York City-based photographer who we featured a while back in a post titled “4 Creative Projects that Bend the Reality of Street Scenes“. Funch photographs scenes for extended periods of time, and then combines people who share something in common. In the photograph above, he chose to include only people who were carrying manila envelopes. You can see more of his work over at his V1 gallery page.
I recently came across this interesting interview video that gives a neat look at how Funch works and how the images are assembled. The interview itself is in English even though the introduction is not:
We learn that Funch shoots at street corners for 10-15 days at a time, and sometimes plants his tripod in the middle of the street with cars behind him. Interesting.
