New York: before and after

There’s a neat project (by a guy named Douglas Levere) called New York Changing. Basically, he re-photographed areas of New York based on an old bunch of photos. His shots used very similar angles, lighting, equipment, and techniques so that the effects of time on the city could be clearly seen.

His work is great; it’s really worth taking a few moments to view all of the time-distant sets of images.

    That was very cool, being able to compare the past with the future.
    He did a great juob of matching up the shots too.

    Fascinating. Wonder what it would look like if someone did that to Cary…

    That stuff is awesome. I think we should all do that with our own towns and cities. It could prove to be a nifty looking project. 🙂

    What a fantastic idea! It would be nice to see other people doing something similar for other major cities around the world.
