Douglas Levere: New York time travel

img book cover While already out since quite some time, its still great to have a look again. In his book New York changing Douglas Levere presents images taken by himself and pairs them with those of Berenice Abbott’s from the 1930s.

Levere used the same camera Abbott had used and returned to the same locations at the same time of day and the same time of year only 60 years later. When pairing the pictures side-by-side they reveal much about the change and urban transformation N.Y. has gone through and is going through every day.

The Morning News Gallery has excerpts from the book online. Douglas Levere is providing the photos side-by-side in a smaller format on the New York changing web site.
