Windows to the Past

During a recent visit to Budapest, I was intrigued by the discernible connections to Hungarian history conspicuous every where that I looked. Hungarian artist/photographer Kerényi Zoltán has created a project called  Ablak a Múltra or Windows to the Past that links the past and present of his country through one lens. His compelling website shows images taken from an online collection of historical photos from the entire 20th century overlaid with his own contemporary shots from the same locations.
