There is something incredibly heart-wrenching about Sergey Larenkov's photographic works -- although I have to admit that I think it's mostly because it speaks entirely to my romantic nature. By superimposing old photographs onto new ones, he has created an eerie look into the past while making it appear as though ghosts were walking among us.

Using a technique known as computational rephotography, Sergey Larenkov specifically draws upon the World War II era. Placing each old photo in its corresponding modern setting, his images evoke an emotional response like no other.
