In “Historic Present,” Korean artist Sungseok Ahn combines past and present by shooting old images of historical locations on screens that line up perfectly with the present-day. Creating such a stark overlap, Ahn’s work explores issues of memory, the rapid passage of time, as well as the way history is treated. More images from his series below.
Hong Kong-based photographer Chan Dick stumbled upon the perfect vantage point: the ventilation window in the washroom at his workshop. From there he began following the roof-top activities and routines of the Chai Wan Fire Station. The resulting images are subtle and strangely satisfying. See more below.
