To achieve the same effect as the one from the site that you’ve shared, you could just enable Apache directory listing.

You could use something like this in your Vhost:

<Directory "/home/your_user/public_html/uploads">
  Options +Indexes
  AllowOverride all
  Order allow,deny 
  Allow from all 
  Require all granted
