  • Christian Carollo is on a mission: to replicate the travel photos his grandfather took, 30 years later. &quot;The Past Present Project began as a way to showcase my grandfather's vintage photography from around the United States, but the project that resulted happened purely by chance,&quot; Carollo writes on his web site <a href="http://pastpresentproject.com" target="external">pastpresentproject.com</a>. Pictured: Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Calif. | April 1979 &amp; May 2015

  • The Past Present Project started in October of 2012, Carollo told ABC News. To date he has recreated about 75 photos, with 200 more to go. It all started &quot;with a randomly selected box of slides that contained his photographs of the Oregon Coast, which is exactly where I would be traveling a week later.&quot; Pictured here: Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans, La. | February 1978 &amp; April 2014

  • &quot;With the help of my grandmother&rsquo;s detailed travel journals from their cross-country trips, I have managed to discover the location of dozens of my grandfather&rsquo;s images,&quot; Carollo wrote on his website. &quot;A project that began by chance now often determines where my next journey will take me.&quot; Pictured here: Old Mesilla, New Mexico | April 1979 &amp; October 2014

  • &quot;Since I largely have my grandfather to thank for my love of travel and photography, I wanted to honor his memory by replicating the photographs he took from his trips all across America. This is my Past Present to him!&quot; Pictured here: Cedar Pass Campground in Badlands National Park, South Dakota | May 1981 &amp; October 2013
