Methods in Re-photography: A Research Method for Amateur Researchers
MetadataShow full item record
“Rephotography” or “Matched photographs” uses multiple pictures of the same subject which are made specifically to repeat an existing image (Klett 1984). Rephotography is the art and science of using a camera to re-take a photo of the past and show the changes (or lack of changes) that have occurred over time. The idea is not all that foreign to most mothers in the US who will take photos year after year of children in front of a familiar backdrop as they grow older in unknown time intervals and life experiences (Klett 1984).
