SEEING THE PAST IN THE PRESENT

Some things don’t change. In Window to the Past, Kerényi Zoltán took vintage photographs of Budapest and overlaid them on pictures of the exact same places shot in 2013. The results are not only stunning in terms of originality and artistry, but also impressive in the way the city was able to preserve its architecture and history. Lucky are they who can go back to a place 10, 20, 30 years after and say: “Oh, that’s EXACTLY where I used to play as a kid!” or “That’s EXACTLY where my friends and I used to have lunch!” Zoltán’s website is: http://ablakamultra.hu/.

(P.S. I’ve been to Budapest in 2010. The cityscape is amazing, a blending of the old and new.)
