Go Start This New Global Photoblog, Okay?
Hey, can someone please start a photoblog that’s about rephotographing, on a global scale? Something that takes a look at familiar and famous photographs, and accounts how they’ve been rephotographed, since? It’d be an easy enough task, on tumblr or wordpress. I’ve seen quite a few posts over the years around the topic, and shoot, there’s even a Wiki page to get you started!
Blake has a new one of Shore/Ulrich. I saw a few over here awhile ago. There’s a Jeff Wall one, and one of my own from a few years ago of a Shore picture from El Paso, below. There are larger projects, like the Bernice Abbott “New York Changing” project and there’s the Kertesz train that appeared in Genius of Photography.
I haven’t seen a comprehensive, myopically obsessed gathering of these. Anyone willing to bet whether this is being tackled already on flickr? Let us/me know! If you start the thing, please leave a comment so we can keep an eye on what you find.
