Dear Photograph is a fantastic website that was awarded the 7th spot in Time Magazine’s Top 50 Websites of 2011. The idea of the website is to take old photos that used film photography and place them in their original setting but in present day. Moreover, an entirely new piece of artwork is formed from the mixture of past and present. The website allows submissions and requires a story behind each photograph submitted. It’s a remarkable concept and one we really enjoyed.
Similarly, an artist named Ben Heine uses photographs to create his project “Pencil vs. Camera.” The two projects differ in many ways but mostly because Heine uses his own illustrations instead of another photograph.
