“The images create a ‘double-vision’ contrast between the intensity of the past, and the banality of the present.” – Information Aesthetics, September 2009
Make History is a world-wide initiative to gather any and every 9/11 story in an effort to understand history from the perspective of those who witnessed it. Using the website, visitors can search, group and sequence any number of histories, photos or experiences, creating custom sequences by time, geography or theme. Each photo is overlaid on a current street-view image of the present day, creating a “double exposure” of past and present. Visit the website at 911history.org.
