Scenes from World War II Photoshopped Onto Today’s Streets

"It is a bit like painting with history," Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse says of her project "Ghosts of History."

She got the idea a few years ago when she found some old negatives at a flea market in Amsterdam, where she lives. “I was very curious about these mysterious photos and wanted to find out who took them and where. So I started to walk around Amsterdam and made photos in the same spot where the old photos were made and combined them on the computer.”
