Paris Now and 150 Years Ago

Julien Knez from Paris has found the old pictures of the city taken during the period from 1871 to 1968 and has photographed them in the same well-known places. The works have turned out very interesting. Photos from the past in a new and modern frame remind a window in history. We have a unique opportunity to see changes in Paris 150 years later.
