The Ghosts of World War II’s Past (20 photos) – My Modern Metropolis

by on Aug.04, 2010, under Society

What a moving and original concept by Sergey Larenkov! These pictures are amazing

“Taking old World War II photos, Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov carefully photoshops them over more recent shots to make the past come alive. Not only do we get to experience places like Berlin, Prague, and Vienna in ways we could have never imagined, more importantly, we are able to appreciate our shared history in a whole new and unbelievably meaningful way.”
