The vintage montages by San Diego, United States-based artist Noah Doely are a celebration of photography and science. Entitled 'A Natural History,' this series is a fictional reconstruction of the life and work of iconic figures like Charles Darwin.

Using a technique called ambrotype photographic process with a wet collodion plate, Doely achieves the retro feel characteristic of his images. These photos are so well-done that they exemplify the period of time the artist wanted to represent. Additionally, these photographs tell little narratives of the scientific work by the subjects portrayed, which makes them interesting and fun.

For an authentic representation of history, the photographic montages by Noah Doely do a brilliant and unique job.
