These are a few sites of interest spanning from 1883 to 1924 and are all located in uptown Charlotte. I am working on narrowing down my photos to just three or four sites and will re-shoot these shots with there present backgrounds.
I visited uptown today and noticed only one building that was still standing, and that was the Ivey Co. which was located at tryon and 5th st. My goal is to shoot each location, starting with the first for a few seconds, then walk to the next location, still filming, and shoot the second, and so on and so on till i link all the photos together. In between shots, i will speed up the film and then slow it down when the frame matches one of the photos.
For a few of the photos with people, I will need a few volunteers to help as "stand ins". I plan to film the location by 'panning' and when i get to the exact frame of the photo i will pause for a moment, thereby matching the peoples place/posture as in the photo, then continue to pan the camera.
I'm hoping to set up times to shoot soon.
