Photographer Peter Funch stakes out busy New York City street corners, capturing hundreds of moments over the course of several weeks from the same spot. Then, he superimposes these real scenes into one surreal super scene. Suddenly, every single person in Times Square is a picture-snapping tourist. Everyone on a Lower East Side street has a little dog. Everyone is yawning. Everyone has balloons. In his series Babel Tales he zooms in on human similarities and collective behaviour creating a poetic and detailed picture of each persons presence both as an individual and as part of a community.
