Photographs portraying modern-day settings or people contrasted with their historical counterpart have been popping up all over recently, as demonstrated in this collection by Sergei Larenkov.

Collections like these that give context to the past while representing the present are arguably one of the most fascinating pieces of art to be released. It's intriguing to see historical settings juxtaposed with the modern day, and be able to directly compare what a building looks like 40 years later. The people are also fascinating to see, as viewers get a sense of how fashion has changed, and the general aesthetics popular in the two eras.
