We are a group of people who love re-photographies( “before and after”, “then and now”) because of their potential to tell fascinating narratives with simply two images. There wasn’t actually a central hub for this kind of art so we got to work and constructed re.photos. It’s a website that enables people to browse hundreds of paintings 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 customers contributed. Hopefully, these comparisons are as arousing for you as they are for us!

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

The 1911 photo shows Grinnell Glacier poised at the upper part of the waterfalls in the foreground and joined with what is now called Salamander Glacier in the background. Grinnell described this wall of ice as being 1,000 feet high in 1887. As of 2008, that wall of ice is move and Grinnell Glacier is not even visible in the contemporary photo.

The 1911 photo shows Grinnell Glacier poised at the top of the waterfalls in the foreground and joined with what is now called Salamander Glacier in the background. Grinnell described this wall of ice as being 1,000 feet high in 1887. As of 2008, that wall of ice is get-up-and-go and Grinnell Glacier is not even visible in the contemporary photograph. Instead, it is behind the buff-colored ridge just above the waterfalls. Salamander Glacier lies along the Garden Wall below the ridgeline. This glacier is thinning in the middle so rapidly that it will probably be in two pieces within a few years. To the upper left is the small, rounded glacier, Gem Glacier, that until recently had not shown signs of retreat. It, too, is now becoming smaller.
