Juxtaposition: Them, Me
Michael Hughes' photos tagged with 'souvenirs'. First seen on Neatorama - Same Place, 50 Years Later.
Link: "The idea was to revisit historic photograph locations and take identical photographs, as if the camera never moved and the world changed around it. It's a little more difficult than I expected due to variations in lenses, inaccessibility of locations and a lack of constant markers. Still all of these are close to correct(some are better than others)." First seen on Neatorama - Trompe l'oeil Photography: Souvenirs in Front of Landmarks.
Something I did myself, pet projects. A Las Vegas map (1952) from University of Nevada Reno's online Nevada in Maps collection overlayed on Google Earth. And in Chicago, a map of the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893.
