Christain Carollo is on an extraordinary journey. For the last four year he has been following his grandfather’s travel photographs, and his grandmother’s journals to the exact places in the United States where his grandparents once stood.

He calls this endeavor the Past Present Project, and aims to narrate a unique history of the United States through his and his grandfather’s lens. With the celebration of National Park Service Centennial this year, here’s a wonderful take on the past and present of America’s National Parks by Christain.
