A Site That Explores The News Before The News

The News Before the Storm is a site that showcases a series of clippings from newspapers the day before and earlier on the day of the world’s most horrific stories—for instance, 9/11 or the 2011 Japanese tsunami. By showing the two side-by-side, then melding them together through collage and overlay, the creators of the series, Ben Polkinghorne and Scott Kelly, investigate the ferociousness of the news cycle, and the utter damage a day’s events can do. See the rest of the series on their website.
