Peter Feldstein's Oxford Project

I initially came accross The Oxford Project while reading June's edition of the Smithsonian newletter. In 1984, Peter Feldstein photographed almost all of the population of Oxford, Iowa (670 of 673). More than 2 decades later, in 2005 , he decided to photograph them all again creating a very interesting photo documentary of the town's population.
Last week, while catching up on my podcasts, I caught an interview segment of Feldstein on Public Radio program Weekend America. What is interesting to see is how people photograph the same way; their posture, hands and feet position and the way they project themselves.
