6 Irish street scenes captured in evocative then-and-now photographs
Oddly beautiful work.

MARK QUIGLEY IS a photographer based in Dundalk. For the last month or so, he’s been taking old photos of Irish street scenes and replicating them perfectly in the modern day.

He then splices the shots together to create a single then-and-now image, for a glimpse of how the scene has changed over the last decades.
