Rephotographic Survey Projects

A rephotographic survey is an attempt by a documentary photographer/scholar to understand changes in the landscape by making a contemporary photograph at the same spot as a historical one and comparing the two images. The passage of time in these photographic pairs is often a reflection of human impact on the land. This method was pioneered in the 1970s as part of a movement called New Topographic Photography.
