Learning Landscapes in Latin America Through the Lens of Rephotography
From Jeff Layne
Department of Geography and Planning
Dr. Scott Brady received his PhD in Honduras and has returned to Latin America to do field work for the past 25 years. During his time there he does rephotography, the process of creating a “then and now” photo. He starts by finding original black and white photos from the ‘20s and ‘30s. Dr. Brady then scouts to find the same location of the original photo, and takes a new picture in the exact same spot. The result illustrates how Mexico and other Latin American countries have evolved over time in their cities and landscapes.
