Windows on History

I’m a sucker for “then & now” photo mash-ups like this wonderful series of Parisian scenes. These images of Paris, all taken between 1871 and 1968, were then re-photographed at the exact spot and from the same angle. The series is from a new book by Paris-based photographer and art director Julien Knez titled Paris, Fenêtres sur l’Histoire. You may already know Knez from his wonderful pop culture blog golem13.

  1. I love this merging of past and present. Wish photographers would do more of this type of work.
