Man Photographs Trip Following In Grandparents’ Footsteps - Awkward Galleries

Sometimes a coincidence can lead to something great. Back in 2012, a week before Christian Carollo was set to visit the Oregon Coast, he stumbled on a box of his grandparents’ vacation slides that happened to contain images of the very place he was about to visit. He saw an opportunity: why not recreate some of the photos himself? He did just that, and the response was so positive, he decided to recreate more of their travel slides from around the country. Luckily for him, his grandmother kept a travel journal that details the locations in the slides, which allows him to recreate the photos with precision.

Carollo calls his recreations the Past Present Project. But it’s more than an exercise in photo recreations–it’s also a tribute to the people who gave him his love of travel and photography.

Check out this gallery of Carollo’s recreations all around the country.

Nude-iversary - Mom & Dad

“This is a photo of me and my family over ten years ago. We were celebrating my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary and even though I was fresh out of the shower and wrapped in a towel, they wanted a picture. Nothing says ‘Congratulations, Mom & Dad’ quite like appearing naked behind their anniversary cake.”

First There Were Engagement Photos, Now There’s Breakup Photos

First There Were Engagement Photos, Now There’s Breakup Photos - Couples

We all remember our first real relationship. At the time it seems like it’s going to last forever. So we can forgive Harrison Bach and Jacqueline Martin, both 22, for having trouble letting go. After dating for three years they broke things off, but didn’t let the relationship fade away without a little memorial. Both of them were home from new hears when Harrison texted Jacqueline with an idea: breakup photos.

Jacqueline went along with it, and the result is…well, what you’d expect from two people who just decided they weren’t right for each other. The discomfort is palpable:

Something tells me the breakup wasn’t exactly mutual:

Don’t worry, they didn’t spend money on the photoshoot, a friend did it.
