A gift of photography is the ability to capture the present not the past or the future but the now.
The world changes. People change - they age - they die. Any environment changes be it human or not. Only by returning can these changes be shown.
Collecting and sequencing these photographic documents enable an understanding of a growth, decay, or replacement that has occurred.
For example, consider how a specific location is modified over a period of time.
