Yes...taken as a series...there's some weight to the idea of using photography as a means to make a point about modern urban society. Curating a bunch of images elevates the mediocre to the level of better-than-mediocre. And no matter what motives one ascribes to the expressions in the series of pictures shown, my comment is still totally accurate and on-point: there is only ONE happy-appearing person in the web story, the lovely young woman. The remainder of the people project neutral to downright negative expressions. Apparently, having a happy expression is a sign of something wrong. Mental illness I guess, right? The use of the derisive term "armchair quarterbacks" is deliberately insulting, and beneath you using it here. Seriously. Uncalled for, totally. I've spent 45 years shooting photos, and this guy shoots like shi+. But we get it...a life in which the daily norm is walking to work in New York City every day can be kinda' shi++*. For most of the people who live that life.
