Window To The Past: Vintage Photos Blended With Modern Day Scenes

Posted by Kristie Wells on November 27, 2013 in Cool Finds

Have you ever wondered how an area might have changed over a 10, 25 or even 75 year period of time?

We came across this project from Kerényi Zoltán, an architect and a photographer from Hungary, who has blended old Hungarian photography with modern day scenes to show how people and places in his country have changed over time.

Budapest, XIV. Városliget, Műjégpálya fortepan_26759

Budapest, XI. Műszaki Egyetem, Könyvtár fortepan_24138

Budapest, VII. Rózsák tere, a templom oldalbejárata fortepan_3473

His architectural background and attention to detail combined with his incredible photographer’s eye has generated a photo series you can get lost in. Check out the rest of the set in his Flickr photo album. Enjoy!
