In Brief

Photographer Audrey Cerdan has created a ‘time machine’ by recapturing photos taken in the past contrasted with modern day.

Rue89 photographer Audrey Cerdan was recently sent to recapture a series of color photos of Paris from the early twentieth century, taken under the direction of Albert Kahn. A ‘time machine’ of sorts shows the images captured in the 1910s next to ones taken in the same location in modern day Paris.

The website has placed the photographs side by side, with a slider so you can extend either image and see how much the city has changed. Cerdan, along with Pascal Riché, wanted to revisit the places where their favorite photographs from the collection were taken.
