Looking Into the Past

Looking Into the Past

Creative photo series by Jason Powell allows you to look into the past while keeping an eye on the present.

Inspired by Michael Hughes’ Souvenirs project, the artist superimposed old photographs onto the modern day locations.

    Images like this freak me out a bit; it’s like seeing ghosts, in a way. Lingering traces of people who once existed in a place, but who are now dead. It’s one thing to know intellectually that people lived/loved/cried/laughed/worked in the exact places you now exist, but it’s kind of an emotional punch in the gut to actually _see_ them doing it, and realize that often, not much has changed except the faces.

    Amazing…almost unreal.

    Nice idea, though it’s been done to death. He could work on his photoshop skills, though. Making the edges of the photos a little rougher and adding some highlights/shading on them would improve the composition.
