Jason Powell looking into the past

If you remember “Pencil versus Camera” project by Ben Heine then this is something really similar, however this time Jason Powell allows us to look into the past.

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. Jason says that so far, most of the historical images have been available for free at the Library of Congress.

The artist still continues to add new photos to his series, and even created a flickr group for people who want to do similar pictures.
