Old Photos of Budapest Spliced Into Present Day
Kerényi Zoltán is an architect and photographer from Budapest, Hungary. In an ongoing series entitled, Ablak a múltra / Window to the past, Zoltán splices old photos of Budapest into present day photos of the exact same location, carefully getting the perfect angle and vantage point.
In the 300+ photo album on Flickr, Zoltán explains:
“Everyone experiences that occasional desire to look back at a bygone age, and to catch a glimpse of something that touches their heart and moves their soul, or throws fresh light on the changes around us. Window to the Past captures snapshots of times gone by in such a way that, while being rooted in reality, the images created form something new by merging the power of the past with that of the present. They offer us the chance to remember with eyes wide open. With open eyes and open heart alike.”
Many of the original photos are over 50 years old. You can find the entire album on Flickr and keep up with the latest on Facebook. Zoltán also has books available for purchase on Etsy.
