Modern photographers set up and photograph the same Paris scenes as French photographer Eugene Atget, who took over 6,000 photos of the city between 1900 and 1926. Fascinating to see what is the same and what has changed over the decades.
Reminds me a lot of a similar project, Vertigo: Then and Now which reproduces shots of San Franscisco as seen in Alfred Hitchock’s movie Vertigo.
I’ve wanted to do something similar in downtown Indy with some of the old postcards I’ve found, especially ones with gorgeous buildings that no longer exist.
