“Then and now” photo projects are all the rage these days, but the video above puts a unique spin on the idea. It’s titled “Yesterday’s Tomorrow: A Portland Journey,” and is a magical tour of Portland, Oregon, with vintage photographs weaved into modern day video of different places in the city.
“We’ve seen books and blogs using the ‘Then and Now’ treatment to show side by side the historic and present via photos,” they write. “But in our curiosity and research, we could not find many or any examples of this comparison being done with motion video.”
After sorting through 5,000 black-and-white photos, the team settled on 50 or so final shots that were used in the project.
