Flaneur of the Times

A new animated short film by Jeff Scher, "The Parade," at the New York Times, celebrates walking through the city, reading faces, costumes, bodies.

Scher joins a long tradition of the flaneur, walking through the city -- Paris, London, New York, Berlin, Rome -- reading the people.

Scher's animation suggests the evanescent mental images and associations he reads in the people he encounters.
