New York - Now and Then

New York
and Then

Published on Oct 22, 2014

New York Now and Then shows before and after photos from New York City shot 1872-1887 compared to my photos shot 2013 and 2014. New York Now and Then includes photographs of New York from between 1872 and 1887, and then and now part is in regard to the fact that I shot the images in present day in the same locations.

This short film New York Now and Then pays tribute to a forgotten 19th century photographer. Be sure to also watch the behind the scenes video New York Now and Then: The Documentary.

New York Now and Then explores 28 before and after photos spanning 140 years, showing how the short film was made. 

New York Now and Then is all about remembering the photographer, but also is about entertaining the viewer with photos showing New York then and now, or as you may notice often they are now and then.
