Looking Into The Past

This is a pretty cool photography project from Jason Powell where the concept is  finding old photographs of places, printing them out, and then holding the print up in the modern-day location that the original photograph was taken. Seems like a pretty simple idea, but I have never seen it done before and the perspective and contrast between old and new which Powell manages to portray is rather impressive.
