Dear Photograph

About a year ago, a Kitchener area man, Taylor Jones had an idea.  According to the article in The Record,

When 21-year-old Jones stumbled across an aged snapshot of his younger brother, Langdon Jones, 18, sitting at the exact same table and chair years earlier, he thought, “this would be really cool if I took a picture within a picture.”

So he overlaid the old scene on the new and snapped away. He repeated the process with a few other prints, and then the self-professed social-media junkie bought the domain name dearphotograph.com and posted the shots on May 24. Each of his picture-on-picture creations carries a cutline that adds context and meaning.

Since that moment, the site went viral, and Taylor Jones now lives in Los Angelas.  The site is called Dear Photograph, and it deserves a look.
