Photographer Shoots The Same People Going To Work Over 9 Year Period

Work in the same area for years and you're bound to see the same faces during your daily commute, especially if you work a 9 to 5 job in a big city.

And even though you may exchange little more than a nod and a "good morning" with these people their faces become very familiar, almost as familiar as those of your friends and family because you see your fellow workers every day.

Danish photographer Peter Funch visited the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt in NYC between the hours of 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. on weekdays from 2007 to 2016 and noticed one consistent thing- the same people going to work each day.

Some of these 9 to 5ers were so consistent they actually wore the same outfits, hair styles and walked next to the same people over the 9 year period, becoming the symbols of consistency in the workplace.

There's also a certain comfort in doing your daily commute and seeing the same people. It reduces the complexity of a city into a village, defined not just by location but by the time of day.
