Correspondence is an interesting project by Paul Greenleaf. He collects old postcards from English towns and then returns to their location and photographs them as they are today. Some are just the same as long ago and some are hardly recognisable as the same place. He hopes to continue the project until it extends all over the UK as a "conceptual social document and a critique of changing places and culture."

It reminds me of that TG4 programme – Cartai Phoist (Postcards)- where they get Irish ‘celebrities’ to recreate the scenes in old postcards. I’ve only seen it once but it was quiet interesting. They were in a little seaside town where everyone knows everyone and were able to track down the child in one of the postcards…he was now in his 50s and seemed both amused and flattered to be part of the reconstruction!
