One day, he realised that he was making the same trip every day for almost four years.
Waking up at the same time, taking the same routes through the same streets, walking on the same sidewalks in front of the same buildings…

This is a work about repetition, present in many forms in these images, not only with people walking by in cadence but also with the buildings facades full of geometric, rythmic and repetitive elements. Because life is all about rythm.
