Documenting 20 Years of Metelkova Mesto

This is a project where I gathered black and white photographs of Metelkova (ex-military compound/prison) from 1993, when it was taken over by artists, from the archive of KUD Mreza and took photos from the same position, 20 years later, of the today’s colourful Cultural Centre Metelkova Mesto.

I used a 7D with a tripod to scan old archive black and white photos. I then took the photos to the site with my camera and the tripod and scouted for the positions where the first photos were taken. Later I overlaid the archive photos with the new photos from the same position in photoshop. It took some tries and going back to the site to get the angle right.

Anyway check out the gallery here.
