The Old New World

Sometimes its great to look back into the older days and reminisce on a simpler time. We get a window into the past and relive the history of these older times through old black-and-white film photographs. Those are classic of course, but imagine how brilliant it would be if you could feel and live these details like it's a 1080px HD piece?

You can now. Moscow-based digital artist Alexey Zakharov has used modern technology to recreate the old days via scanned old photographs of New York, Boston and Washington DC. The result is a breathtaking 3D-like immersion into the days of past, allowing us to escape into a daydream of those goold ol' days.
