“View South-West along 2nd Ave. from E. 121st St. Harlem, NY 1988”
by: Camilo Jose Vergara
This has to be the most in-depth photo project I am aware of by a single photographer. With “Invisible Cities,” Camilo Jose Vergara documented Harlem, New York, Camden, New Jersey and more recently Richmond, Virginia returning often to take the same photo each time. This project, spanning over 30 years, is simply mind blowing. Seeing these urban landscapes changing is a gift to the cities and to the history books.
Check out the entire 3 city project at Invisible Cities.
I’d love to see someone like Google Earth take on a project like this on a larger scale, it would lose the intimacy of Vergara’s photos, but would be interesting nonetheless.
