What if you could be in two places at once? Or, more specifically, two eras at once? French art director Julien Knez has created a beautiful project that brings the past into full focus.
Imagine you are walking past the Moulin Rouge and the street is suddenly flooded with horse-drawn carriages. Or maybe you are shopping near the Arc de Triumph when a double decker trolly car comes speeding past. Highlighting scenes from the past with the present day, Julien Knezcombines the two in a breath taking way. The historical photographs give us a window to the past when overlayed onto modern sites. His superimposed images put history into perspective and give us a vivid reminder of how Paris used to be. This project grew into a book for Knez and we can see why! My favorite are the the WWII scenes, which are rather poignant. Take a look through the screen to a place where eras collide in the most beautiful way.
