historic photo of rancher Fred Genazzi (left) and a contemporary image of Terry Shea (right) by Gisela Alvarado

Inspired by historic photographs taken around the Point Reyes peninsula in the 19th and early 20th century, members of the Latino Photography Project replicated historic scenes in the same or similar manner in the present. The historic image and the LPP photographer’s interpretation are presented side-by-side, such as the historic photo of rancher Fred Genazzi (left) and a contemporary image of Terry Shea (right) by Gisela Alvarado. Now and Then was exhibited at the Jack Mason Museum in Inverness in 2019 and was scheduled to be shown at the Point Reyes Library on April 2, 2020. Below are more photographs from this exhibition.

Inspirados en fotos históricas tomadas alrededor de la península de Point Reyes en el siglo XIX y principios del siglo XX, los fotógrafos de LPP replicaron escenas históricas de la misma manera en el presente.

Tanto la imagen histórica como la interpretación del fotógrafo actual se presentan lado a lado, como la foto histórica del ranchero Fred Genazzi (izquierda) y una imagen contemporánea de Terry Shea (derecha) tomada por Gisela Alvarado. Ahora y Entonces (Now and Then) se exhibió en el Museo Jack Mason en Inverness en 2019 y estaba programado para mostrarse en la Biblioteca Point Reyes en abril de 2020.
