Compelling composites: Peter Funch’s Photography

‘Memory Lane’ & ‘Times Square Pose’ from Babel Tales by Peter Funch
What if all those inconsequential actions we do day-in-day-out were suddenly shared moments en masse? Would we think differently about our actions, their implications or would we simply smile?
Peter Funch‘s Babel Tales series of epic composite digital photographs beg just these sorts of questions. Taking multiple shots of single locations around New York City (where he now lives), Funch extracted figures sharing the same action, object, emotion or intention. His behaviour-scapes are equally entertaining and terrifying. The images simultaneously create a sense of shared communities of agency and destroy the precious boundary of modern individuality.
For more images from Funch’s Babel Tales, please see his website and the website of his V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.
