Canadian designer Marc Ghali created a stunning celebrity collection in 'Then & Now.' The photos match past celebrities with current ones that embody their spirit. Pictures in the Then & Now collection match up perfectly as if a rift were opened up in time and Ghali happened to take a picture. The results of the artist's time meddling is a series of surprisingly elegant and insightful graphics.

Then & Now pairs important political figures together as well as extremely well known celebrities. Ghali put Obama and Malcolm X together as well as Princess Kate and Princess Diana. In addition, Ghali saw fit to pair Brad Pitt and James Dean while mashing Rihanna and Diana Ross into one. All six of the mashups saw past celebrities combined with their uncanny modern day equivalents. Stats for Celebrity Time Rift Captures Trending: Older & Average
