Photo Fun

So many interesting photo projects, so little time.

Many moons ago (well before my doctoring life), I had a solo photography exhibit in a gallery in DC called Bronx Redux.  Remember that, Slink?! In the show, I combed through old photos from my parents’ personal archives from their childhood in the Bronx.  Then I went back to the location of the original photos and shot current ones.  It was interesting to see how certain places had changed and others had stayed the same in many ways.

Here’s a variation on that theme and a few other interesting photography projects I’ve run across recently:

Two brothers recreated family snaps of themselves 20 years later.  This would make a great gift for family or old friends.

Switcheroo” is a project by Vancouver-based photographer, Sincerely Hana in which couples exchange outfits, and are photographed twice against the same background. I think the results are pretty interesting/hilarious.

This one is probably my favorite. Intrigued by the idea of doppelgangers,  photographer Francois Brunelle set out to take 200 portraits of people totally unrelated who actually look like identical twins.  I can’t stop looking at these.

First of all, I applaud your commitment to posting. Secondly, these are fabulous. I especially love the one where the brothers recreated the scene 20 years later…an idea I could totally see us coming up with and thinking we were genius! And the doppelgänger brings to life an idea I always think of, especially as I am walking through a crowded airport, a baseball game, large event with multitudes of people…how can there be so many humans in the world and we all look so different? Apparently, that is not so much the case. I would love to see this again including different cultures.

    These are all awesome! I don’t know how/where you find them, but I thoroughly enjoyed. Except the one that was missing: Bronx Redux. And of course you did. Another layer of Gail Shust peeled away…
