Ancient Korean Architecture Juxtaposed With Its Modern Incarnation

Sungseok Ahn's "Historic Present" series makes us nostalgic for a city we've never been to.

Korean artist Sungseok Ahn is making us nostalgic for a city we've never visit. The artists' photo series, Historic Present, aligns projections of Seoul from yesteryear with the same buildings in the present. Not dissimilar to this splitscreen of London from 1927 and the 2000's, Ahn's series is subtle-yet-poignant vantage into a city's soul (pun unintended) as defined by its architecture. See some photos of Ahn's work below:
