Revealing the Past
I love history.
I love the stories, the triumphs and the tragedies.
Photos and maps of times long ago draw me in, whether they show momentous events or personal glimpses. I become enamoured with an expression, the tilt of a building or the flow of an army across a landscape. My mind retraces the steps, tries to deconstruct the scene and understand the emotions of the moment.
And then I find myself (re)constructing what likely happened or at times, what I hope happened.
The photos by Sergey Larenkov provide a very interesting connection between the past and the very real present. I love the concept. Even more, I love the creations that he has posted – merging images from World War II with photos he has taken in the present day.
