Now And Then is a historical photography project with a twist - an old photo is reframed within a new one to tell a story of past moments and how times have changed.

This week the Museum of Sydney has opened and exhibition fo Now and Then images from regional Australia, part of an online project launched by ABC Open in October 2010.

Now And Then invites people across Australia to share their stories about local people and places.

Regional Australians have contributed images reframing historical photos from a mix of collections including family albums, libraries, historical societies and museums, and the archives of schools, companies and charitable organisations.

The exhibition is one display until November 4, celebrating the legacy of both private and public photograph collections cared for in regional towns.

The images demonstrate the rich tapestry of history, landscapes and cultures found across Australia.

Look out for the 'Your Now and Then' photography competition at hht.net.au, Entries open on 16th June. Happy snapping!
