Man Took Photos of the Same Place for Over 40 Years and Watched Them Decline

Chilean-born photographer Camilo José Vergara photographed buildings in his neighborhood and watched them change over the years, documenting them over a time span of over four decades .

Camilo focused on the most segregated communities in urban America, returning year after year to re-photograph the same places and becoming “an archivist of decline”.

Let’s take a brief look at the space and time he has tracked…

Vyse Avenue, South Bronx, NY (1980-2013)

4344 West Madison Ave, Chicago (1981-2014)
