In time for Durham's 150th Anniversary, I'm adding another image to my series of temporal juxtapositions, "If Then/Now." Here's the corner of Main and Corcoran Streets as seen from the same vantage point 105 years apart. Looking west, you can see the old post office in 1914, and the 21c Hotel that now sits on the site.
Ironically, this century old image was the first one I found during a photo reference research dive in 2014 that became the inspiration for "Temporal Cartography"— but due to all the construction downtown, I was unable complete it until this year.
The diptych of this gif appears in the current show "Portraits of Durham," running through May 3 at the Durham Arts Council.
