In July 2009, the Design Trust for Public Space awarded the fifth Photo Urbanism fellowship to Kramer O'Neill for his project Same Time Every Day. Mr. O'Neill's ambitious project was "an attempt to reveal moments of grace in the mystery of the city's life, one tiny instant at a time."
For his fellowship, Mr. O'Neill spent 18 months photograping five distinct locations throughout New York City at the same time, every day (view a Google map of the project). His images capture the poetic moments that happen in the public realm every day, elegantly illuminating the quotidian, the strange,and the beautiful.
View all the project images.
