Savannah Past and Present, published in 2011, is a rephotographic survey of the city of Savannah and it’s surrounding areas. The 160-page hardcover book features a foreword by local author Martha Keber and offers a fascinating visual documentation of the transformation and preservation of this historic city. The collection of 144 images stretches from the River Street waterfront and commercial/residential areas of the Historic District to Tybee Island and Fort Screven. Each page juxtaposes a historic black and white image – from the archives of the Georgia Historical Society, the Savannah Historic Foundation, the Tybee Island Historical Society and others – with a present-day color image taken from the same point of view.

In Millledgeville Then and Now, a historical photographic survey published in 2009, Bailey Davidson documents, with meticulous attention to detail, the evolution and transformation of the city of Milledgeville, Georgia, from a frontier capital city to the modern, collegiate city that exists today. Divided into three chapters of Homes, Downtown, and Places, one hundred images, many dating as far back as the mid-19th Century, have been collected and rephotographed from the same point of view.
