A detail from Peter Funch‘s Babel Tales series, “Hommage à Fisher”. Danish-born and educated and now based in New York, Funch had already been a successful photojournalist before turning to art. The photographer’s remarkable urban streetscapes are created by taking many shots from a given corner and then skilfully collaging them together (um, somehow). They repay close observation, and manage to convey a sense of both the hyperreal in the particular and the surreal in aggregate.
I think I once promised myself I’d never write sentences that sounded like that last one.
