The awesome photographer Flora Borsi, who once showed how Photoshop would look like in real life, is up to her awesomely hilarious tricks again. This time, Borsi splices herself taking a picture with a cell phone camera into old photographs. It’s a commentary on how ridiculous we look trying to capture every waking moment through our camera’s screen. It’s fantastic.
Borsi describes her “Time Travel” photo series:
How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to instagram, twitter, facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it? I imagined how I would to do! My inspiration was a Charlie Chaplin Movie.
It’s sort of jarring to see one person take a picture when no one else is (well other than the photographer who captured the original picture, that is). Especially since we’re used to seeing a sea of camera phones in any crowd these days. See more of Borsi’s work here. [Flora Borsi via PetaPixel]
