Re- photographies! There is something fascinating about photographing the same place again and again, isn’t it? And the world is full of beautiful places. Rephotography tells a lot of stories; fascinating ones and with just two pictures you can easily make out how the place has changed with time. Count in all the famous landscapes, or even castles, ruins and national buildings. They have all changed in color, surroundings and of course modernization. The website re.photos is such a platform where the photographers collect before- and- after pictures, suited for both places and people.
