The project is called “Past Present Project” and was made by Christian Carollo, he thinks this is the best way to present him.
The Story is interesting: Carollo started this project by accident in October 2012. When he find his grandfathers vintage travel photos which was taken at Oregon Coast, which he planned to visit one week later.
Then he decided to apposition his grandfathers travel photos by order where it was taken. He was just curious, what if he replicated his grandpas travel photos 30 years later?
He started to take photos with the help of his grandmas detailed trip journal. “Upon returning home, and seeing the interest that built around that single photograph, I wondered how many more I could possibly capture. With the help of my grandmother’s detailed travel journals from their cross-country trips, I have managed to discover the location of dozens of my grandfather’s images. A project that began by chance, now often determines where my next journey will take me.”
He said about the project:
“Since I largely have my grandfather to thank for my love of travel and photography, I wanted to honor his memory by replicating the photographs he took from his trips all across America. This is my Past Present to him!”
I think this the greatest gift ever given!
