All of us have ad daily morning routine. But photographer Peter Funch has had his own for 9 years, capturing the rituals of strangers on their way to work on the same street corner, every day between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. over this course of nine years.

On the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt, right outside New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, from 2007 to 2016 he photographed the crowds that emerged in waves from the depths of the station. He managed to photograph his subjects doing the same small rituals–days, weeks, and even years apart.

Funch says he photographed one older man in 2007, 2012, and again in 2017. “You could hardly believe it, that you’d find the same people having the same ritual over 10 years,” ScreenShot2017-10-11at12.01.45PM ScreenShot2017-10-11at12.05.13PM ScreenShot2017-10-11at12.07.08PM ScreenShot2017-10-11at12.08.51PM ScreenShot2017-10-11at12.09.30PM

Funch says. “It’s such a New York thing, the idea that people just do the same thing over and over again.”

“A big city is suddenly a small world,” Funch says.
