Ruth Fremson has a Pulitzer Prize to her name and she shoots for the NYT. I was just caught by this pair of images that shows a group of New Yorkers walking down a busy street and then a close up of the street itself, which has a crack and two black dots forming a smile. Reminds me of shit I did back when I was in China, trying to take photos of everything that had “faces” on it. Only, Fremson takes it to another level, adding that real connection between object and user.

Other photos show wear and tear on a man’s shoe and a similar looking shot on the ground. There’s also a shot of one of those chewing gum dispensers with the multicolor gumballs in one shot and a street covered with blobs of dried up gum that’ve been stepped on forever.
