Re.photos is a website dedicated to re-photographies, which show how placed looked many decades ago and how they’ve changed in recent years. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ images tell their individual story depending on the type of life that people had in that era. Nobody expects to see large buildings and cars running in the streets in photos that were taken at the beginning of the previous century. On the other side, the images that were taken recently are expected to feature more grown cities, with cars running around and people gathering in the streets.
