Our Story
It Started With A Single Photograph
Humble Beginnings
Back in 2010, soon to be Then & Now Art® founder Jacob Sieg was shooting photographs of the Chicago skyline from the north end of Lake Shore Drive.

The photographs were turning out great!
Pieces Come Together
It was almost an accident really. Jacob arrived home after his routine photography session and while uploading his images, he was a little disheartened by the lack of originality.

Soon after, inspiration struck! He decided to start researching for old photographs of Lake Shore Drive at the local historical society. After some digging, he came across one that was very similar to the ones he had taken.
After a bit of searching he came across a photograph that was almost identical to the one he shot. Better yet, it was over 100 years old! The problem was, it was ALMOST identical, not an exact match. It needed to be perfect. He booked a trip back, determined to replicate the original.
Upon returning to the Windy City he was able to snap the perfect shot he needed. From there, combined with his extensive computer background, he was able to recreate the beautiful image you see here. The rest is history, our company was born!

Timeless. Nostalgic. Renassaince.
