rePhotoSA is the repeat photography project of southern African landscapes engaging with the public as “citizen scientists” to repeat modern photographs of southern African landscapes, from a large collection of historical photographs.
By comparing the differences in the ‘old and new’ photographs it is possible to gain an understanding of how southern African landscapes are changing in response to climate, land use and development impacts.
A collaborative project between the Plant Conservation Unit and the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town.
