One photography fad nowadays is to make composite photographs that blend past and present into a single photo. Never before have I seen the same concept applied to movie footage. Despite daily bombardments from Nazi planes during World War II, many areas of London have not changed all that much during the past 100 years, making it possible to blend a video from 1924 with videos from today. It’s really quite powerful.
