One artist tackles urban alienation by creating composite photos that prove we have things in common.

Though New York City can seem impossibly huge, or a hodge-podge of people who have little in common, we often forget that it's the little things which bind us together. While the above photo might look like a snapshot from Improv Everywhere, in reality it's actually a composite of several separate photos, taken at entirely different times and places, all painstakingly reassembled by artist Peter Funch in order to help show the social tapestry of a city from some of its most overlooked viewpoints. As part of his digital college series in BABEL TALE BOOK, Funch took photographs over the course of four years, in order to create his fascinating digital collages.
