Dia 27 - Any 3 // Day 27 - Year 3

El descobriment del dia ha sigut el d'aquest article,
on han publicat unes fotos que són la  combinació de fotos de la Segona Guerra Mundial amb fotos actuals del mateix lloc exactament.

És curiós i impressionant... i a més a més, la feina que deu haver tingut el fotograf en trobar el mateix lloc.

Això és el que l'autor, Jo Teeuwisse, vol aconseguir amb el seu treball:
"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."



The day's discovery has been this article,
which publishes photos which are a combination of World War 2 photos with a photo from the exact same place today.

It's interesting and astonishing at the same time... and what's more, I can't imagine the amount of work must have been to figure out the location of each WW2 photo.

This what the author, Jo Teeuwisse, wants to accomplish with these photos:
"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."
