Historical Pics Combined with Photos Made on the Exact Same Spot Today

Dutch historian Jo Teuwisse creates these images by combining digitized war photo negatives he found on a fleamarket with photos of the same locations as they appear today.

By combining historical pictures with photos made on the exact same spot today, I try to make people realise that history is all around us.

That where you live, work or go to school, once people fought, died or simply experienced a different kind of life. We are history, history is us.

Jo spent countless hours doing research, trying to figure out where old photos were taken, visiting the location, making the ‘today photo’ and then combining them.

This collection make people think about the past, remember and respect the sacrifices the generations before us made.
