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.

About Photo Urbanism  
Photography plays an integral role in the examination, discussion, and re-imagining of New York City's public spaces. The Design Trust's Photo Urbanism program supports this role by offering fellowships to photographers to produce a discrete body of work that explores particular qualities of New York City's natural and built environment. The first five Photo Urbanism projects, each focusing on a different aspect of New York City's public realm, will form a catalog of the city's evolving character and will be published collectively at the program's conclusion.

Photo Urbanism was founded in 2001 and has supported five distinct photographics studies:
   - The Edge of New York by Diane Cook & Len Jenshel
  - The Bridge Project by Jonathan Smith
  - Portrait of Jamaica Bay by Travis Roozée
  - Out My Window by Gail Albert Halaban
  - Same Time Every Day by Kramer O'Neill
