Love for Art, History, and NYC Combined

Anyone who knows even a modicum of New York City history knows that the great city has gone through a lot in its day.  Everything from fires and arrests, to deaths and gangsters, is all in this wonderful city’s past.  

And now, people can place the past right next to the present in a beautiful photography series done by Marc A. Hermann.  It is a eye-opening juxtaposition of the chaotic occurrences throughout history placed next to the present-day, peaceful scenes.  The way Hermann blends these two images into one is extraordinary and it really brings another viewpoint through which the public can understand history.  

It’s definitely worth a look-through because, if not anything else, it is a mesmerizing angle into the city.
