Dear Photograph…

This is an incredibly simple but powerful concept. Taking a shot of an old photo in the original location creates a new image, which appears as an echo of the past in the present.

Aaron Hobson has assembled some great photography as part of his Cinemascapes series, the difference is he has not taken the shots, he has found some of the most remote and beautuful locations he could find on Google Streetview and collected them together.

Great concept and the shots he has chosen do not look like they have simply been captured by the automated eye of a street view camera car.

You can see them all here.
