Philadelphia Hybrid Photography


A different take on the before and after concept. Exact same place, completely different eras.

Bronze boot scrapers next to old steps, marble blocks used to mount a horses, cobblestone streets, authentic architecture... these are the things that catch my attention when I walk the streets of Philadelphia. I imagine the people, the sounds, the smells and the pace of metropolis 100 years ago.

Philadelphia Hybrid Photography is my time machine. I find historic photographs and digitally merge them with photos I've taken from the exact same location. What's new? What's old? It's always fascinating to see how much has changed and, in many cases, how much has stayed the same.
