The Ghosts of World War II

Taking old World War II photos, Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov carefully photoshops them over more recent shots to make the past come alive. Not only do we get to experience places like Berlin, Prague, and Vienna in ways we could have never imagined, more importantly, we are able to appreciate our shared history in a whole new and unbelievably meaningful way.

Update: Months after this post went viral, we were able to get in touch with Larenkov to ask him more about this series. Read that exclusive interview here.
