Through a new collaboration, Behold will occasionally feature content from Christopher Jobson's wonderful site, Colossal.
In this series of carefully Photoshopped images, photographer Shawn Clover created composite photographs that blend historical scenes from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake with his own present-day captures of the same locations.
A number of other artists have created similar images, most notably Sergey Larenkov’s Ghosts of WWII, but Clover really seems to have put in extreme amounts of effort trying to determine how each photograph precisely overlaps with the other, resulting in some fascinating interactions between past and present.
