We are a group of people who love re-photographies (“before and after”, “then and now”) because of their potential to tell fascinating stories with just two pictures. There wasn’t really a central hub for this kind of art so we got to work and built re.photos. It’s a website that enables people to browse hundreds of pictures or upload and align their own.

Today we would like to share our excitement with you and show you some of the best pictures (in our opinion) our users contributed. Hopefully, these comparisons are as exciting for you as they are for us!

There are probably some crazy before and after photos of Dresden related to the war.

It's corner of Ratajczaka and Św. Marcin Streets. "Skrzyżowanie" means "crossroads" in Polish. :)

#9 Engabreen Glacier, Norway, 1889 - 2010

Engabreen Glacier, Norway, 1889 - 2010

Axel Lindahl’s picture of Engabreen from 1889 shows the foot of the glacier, where there was only ice, glacial gravel, water and bare mountainsides in a seemingly cold and hostile landscape. Now, more than 120 years later, the valley has become far more fertile. Birch forest, shore meadows, willow thickets and marshland have established themselves, while the glacier arm has retreated far back up the mountainside.

The first picture is definitely not from 1900. Judging by the cars, it was taken around 1930. This is what the place actually looked like in 1900, before a fire destroyed the building in 1915: Moulin-Rouge-1.jpg Moulin-Rouge-1.jpg
