I take photos of musicians in the exact same place they were photographed years ago (71 photos)

I’m recreating music history by taking original photos of musicians and bands at the exact location where they were photographed years or even decades ago. The project started in 2010 with old family photos, and since then, I’ve transitioned into music photography covering over 500 music locations sharing my work primarily on Instagram.

I compose each shot to include the original image in my hand, as it appears today with the background (as best I can). I’ve enjoyed following in the footsteps of some of my favorite musicians while learning more about music history along the way. I like to challenge myself to explore each location, so I conduct interviews, research photographers, and investigate timelines of musicians during specific periods. I also comb through Google Maps, sometimes go street-by-street, look for locations, and try to match them with original photos.
