knowwherestand1knowwherestand2knowwherestand4knowwherestand3A series of superimpositions created for a 2010 History Channel promo by photographer Seth Taras entitled ‘Know Where You Stand’. Taras recreated the angles of images taken of various historical events around the world in an early example of the ‘then and now’ trope.

Above: the 1937 Hindenburg Crash, the Berlin Wall in 1989, the 1944 Normandy Landings and Hitler in Paris in 1940.
