What a strong, beautiful and uplifting use of photography, and of the web. The Faces of New York are wonderful, and I wanted to see a hundred of them. And the bridge, the people on the bridge... all marching into eternity. This is the pleasure of walking down the street in a busy city: the faces; the imagined histories; eyes, mouths, noses and the color and texture of skin. Simon Hogsberg "gets" it.

I dont get why the 100 meter photo is under the precept of "were all gonna die", the photo seems more fun than that. I really didn't look that hard, but the weather seemed to cooperate with her project, making the his seam stitching a little easier.

captain, the answer to the "we're all gonna die" title is explained in his interview with Digital Photography School linked in the FPP.
