    Photo of photo, aligned in space

    http://dearphotograph.com/

    Does anyone know the right name for this style of photography? Or has links to more?

    The website englishrussia.com once did a spread of something very similar with old prints in moscow showing architectural change before and after ww2(cant find it anymore).

    I think these are great fun, and would love to see if anyone knew of anymore.

    I have seen this style done correctly only once and that is in the 7th edition View Camera Technique by Leslie Stroebel.

    On page 143 in chapter six (6.15) sub titled, Trick Perspective, is this:-

    Quote:-

    Alignment of the image inside the frame with the background creates the illusion of a transparent body, an application of the Gestalt organizational law of continuation.

    Unquote.

    The first picture your link goes to, is the best.

    Interesting concept, something I have been wishing to do for some time.

    I found a few more, but I they are a bit different than the 1st link, though along the same lines of Trick perspective. Would have been much cooler with the actual photos there, which I am sure they used to align the shots.

    Those compositions on the EnglishRussia site are pretty impressive. I'm going to search some old family photos and see if I can do something similar. Thanks for posting this!

    yea the englishrussia site has many photographic gems from time to time. I love the old color and b&w scans from the soviet bloc era and even before that. Its quite an amazing cultural perspective. The adwork and propaganda art is amazing too.

    I'm a fan too. I just tried to post a link to a set on flickr called 'Looking into the Past' but I don't have enough posts. Worth a search, it is by Jason Powell.

    These are great. Very sentimental somehow... like we're seeing a ghost.

    I think it's called rephotography.

    You may also want to look at Mark Klett's work. He incorporates old USGS photographs, well-known Ansel Adams photographs, etc., and his own to create panoramic images of the landscape. His ideas are about the landscape and time.

    as Greg mentions mark klett has done some amazing stuff in this vein..

    I would suggest trying to find a copy, at a library, or elsewhere.. of the awesome work Second View: The Rephotographic Survey Project by Mark Klett.

    really cool project..
