Dear Photograph

A fascinating site playing with time and memory and photography. A few months back, Taylor Jones saw his brother sitting at their family dining table, in the exact place he was in a photograph 15 years earlier. He took the old photograph, held it against the current background, and created a new "time-travel" image.
Dear Photograph is the result.

"Dear Photograph,
At the time it was not common for a man to walk behind a pram.
I’m still proud of my father.
Eva Willemier Westra"

"Dear Photograph,
Je t’aime Paris, but I love my mother more. After 15 years she finally brought me along!
Leah Romm"

"Dear Photograph,
I have no idea what sort of Christmas present awaited my brother Casey in that tube. Just like I had no idea that this past week Casey would die in a horrible accident in Kerala, India. I wanted to bring him home one last time to our house in Texas. This is the only way I could…it’s been a tough week.

"Dear Photograph,
Early morning walks together and my little boy, those moments will always make up the color in my life, and in my heart.
