Looking Into the Past

Looking Into the Past: Beauty Pageant Winners, Union Station, Washington, DC

There has been a lot talk around the blogosphere about the incredibly talented Irina Werning and her ‘Back to the Future’ photographs. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing them. Today on WebUrbanist, I learned about Jason Powell and his ‘Looking Into the Past’ series.

‘Images are made by finding old photographs of places, printing them out, and then holding the print up in the modern day location that the original photograph was taken. So far, most of the historical images have been available for free at the Library of Congress.’

Jason writes that the project was inspired both by his love of history and Michael Hughes’ Souvenirs series.
