Abstract


The Fort Worth Evolutions project takes original material by Ft. Worth commercial photographer W.D. Smith and creates a modern view of those photographs. Images taken in the 1920s-1950s are retaken from the same angle in this century and compared to urban architecture of the early to mid 20th century. This project leverages the process of digitization and the art of modern digital photography to create a contrast of urban development over the last 90 years.
