SMU Dallas Hall Rephotography

Since 2009, I have periodically photographed Dallas Hall and the Main Quadrangle at SMU from a single vantage point, essentially rephotographing the same scene over and over again. Every time I make a photograph of this scene, however, it is anything but the same.

Displayed in this mini gallery are just a few examples from this series. These photographs were made with either simple point-and-shoot cameras or iPhones and edited mostly with Photoshop, Alien Skin, or Instagram.

Check out the Wikipedia entry for rephotography to learn more about this approach and start your own rephotographic project.
