Ghosts of War, Then and Now Composite Photos of World War II

Ghosts of War by Jo Teeuwisse

“Ghosts of War” is an ongoing series of then and now composite photos of Europe during World War II. Dutch historian Jo Teeuwisse creates each image by first tracking down the location depicted in the photo. She then replicates the photo with her own camera (some modern day photos were taken by claude.demeester) and digitally combines the images into a ghostly composite. For more of her then and now composites, see her Flickr collection “The Ghosts of History.”
