The city of Dubai seems to be built on the brink of the future. However, photographer Martin Becka has decided to flip the avant garde city on its head by capturing photos of the city with an 1857 view camera. The resulting images look like they came out of a 19th century National Geographic.

The photos are part of the Transmutations series and were shown at the Dubai Empty Quarter Gallery a few months ago. You can check out more on the futuristic city of Dubai finds on Trend Hunter below. Stats for Time-Traveling Cityscapes Trending: Older & Chilly
