The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

World War II (a particular fascination of mine) was, in brief a “photographer’s war.” Arguably, it produced the most iconic photos of any conflict — so many amazing, astonishing, gut-wrenching, inspiring, horrifying, terrifying, and just plain memorable images that are permanently engraved on our collective unconscious.

Recently, someone got the bright idea of putting together a collection of photos of Normandy, France and its surrounds from the D-Day invasion and aftermath, then recreating the photos in modern times. In brief, to examine the photos, precisely locate the subject and the photographer’s vantage point, and re-take the photo.

The results are, in a word, stunning.
