These photographs, blended using Photoshop, are drafts of a project I’m planning with the Canmore Musuem & Geoscience Centre (all historical images are courtesy of the museum). At this point, I’m referring to these five photographs as drafts as they still need work, but the core idea is there: Combining modern and historical photographs takes the “Then and Now” approach of the before and after photographs but it seems to work even better than simply placing two images side by side. The effect can be striking. Take for example the work of Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov, whose work inspired me to try this for Canmore. Numerous other photographers are working with this great approach, as well. It’s a challenging process, but does it ever tell a great story!
