Peter Funch – awesome NYC photoshopgrapher

Thanks to JABFinger for this one. He says:

Danish photographer Peter Funch stakes New York City street corners out for two weeks at a time, taking pictures of passersby from the very same spot. But what he does next may be even more labor-intensive.

For his “Babel Tales” photo series, Funch picked dozens of samey pedestrians — smokers, cell-phone gabbers, hospital-scrubs wearers, yawners — and Photoshopped them into the same frames. In one photo, Times Square shutterbugs turn into a swarm of paparazzi. In another, an ocean of kids seems to wash over the city. Funch has even created a New York where everyone carries flowers.

Check out some images here.

I love how on the first image on his site, you don’t really notice the theme, but when you see the second image, it becomes really apparent.

The kids one is my favorite.

For some people, Thumb is number one. For others, Index is number one. When I count on my fingers, I use my index finger first and my thumb last. You gotta prolem with that?

  1. F*ckin’ awesome issues here. I am very happy to peer your article. Thank you a lot and i’m taking a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?

  2. i agree with above, most people dont give a damm if you take their pic in the street. so long as you dont look creepy… if you take a pic of someone, and make it obv you are shooting the scene with them in it… then 9/10 they will be flattered

  3. Which book do you mean?

    I love the movement in the second shot.

  4. that doll in pic 1 was random

  5. In 15 years that I’ve been photographing people on the street, I have had less than a dozen asking me not to take their picture. Most people feel flattered.

  6. I guess if you’re working on a tripod with a cable-release, it might not be so hard to take pics without people really knowing.

  7. Those are really cool. I wonder how many stinkeyes he has to edit out of his pictures. I bet only 1 out of 50 people isn’t giving him a dirty look. My favorite person is the greasy princess with big boobs.

  8. Love the NY photos. You do in NY what I’ve been doing in Vancouver, B.C. for the last 15 years.
