Name for the project: "Changing Denver"

We've been mulling over names for the project and have settled on "Changing Denver." Simple, and pays homage to Berenice Abbott's book, "Changing New York." Hers was not a rephotographic attempt, but documentation of the city in 1935-1938 for the Federal Art Project. An incredible achievement; 302 images. New York Public Library has the archive:

But perhaps "Denver Changing" is better? Something to ruminate on...

Phase One is complete

Today I brought home 37 beautiful sets of matted photographs (111 photographs: 1937-1978-2012).This is the first phase of the rephotographic project. The  next step is to print the remaining 180 streetcorner views. I will need to purchase scans from History Colorado for the 1937 images and then digitize the 1978 images. Most of the 2009-2012 images are scanned as JPG's. Everything will need to be filed and preserved now and going forward.
This will constitute an amazing look at how Denver has changed over 76 years.

I will initiate a Kickstarter project shortly.
