Architectural photographer recreates scenes from turn of the century photos.

If you could go back to the time before the sprawling skyscrapers of today’s New York City, you’d find a different city, full of horse drawn carriages and men in hats and dark suits. In other cases you’d see that some parts of the city haven’t changed much at all.

An architectural photographer, Evan Joseph, recreated scenes from turn of the century photos by climbing, flying and leaning over precarious structures to capture images from the same spot as his earlier counterparts. He presents the old and new photos side by side in a book called New York Then and Now.
