How WWII Would Look Today

Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov has created a whole new art form with these incredible photos.

By superimposing archival photos taken during the second world war, over photos of the identical place, but taken today, he makes the past and the future come together and alive in a truely spellbinding way.

Cities he has chosen include Berlin, Prague and St Petersberg.

Its powerful stuff. See more of his photos here and photos of Russia specifically here.

    I’d seen these in an email forward from a colleague at work; they are quite extraordinary.

      Agree. I hope he does more.
      I was in Berlin recently, and its amazing seeing the destruction put in such clear context.
