‘Know Where You Stand’: Photographer Fuses 4 Historical Events With Present-Day Images


When The History Channel needed a worldwide branding campaign, they turned to Seth Taras, an award-winning, self-taught American artist/photographer. Seth went on to create Know Where You Stand, a stunning mash up of historical photograph negatives overlaid into modern times. Seriously, imagine how much more impact the past could have if you took a trip to a place like Paris or Berlin and realized you were standing in Adolf Hitler’s shadow.

The four Know Where You Stand photographs — which won the Cannes Lion Award for best brand campaign — are simply stunning. A reminder how dramatically the world can change even when the landmarks stay the same.
