People from 1900s Detroit Photos Photoshopped Into Modern Day Scenes

People from 1900s Detroit Photos Photoshopped Into Modern Day Scenes The city of Detroit, Michigan has gone through huge economic and demographic changes over the past century. Once a booming car-making city with 1.85 million residents back in the 1950s, the beaten-down city had just 700,000 in 2013.

After accidentally capturing a portrait with the ISS in the background, I sent it to a lot of local news outlets in the Netherlands, along with a lot of big international photo blogs (PetaPixel was one of them).

No need to write a long story if they don’t like the photo anyway, I thought. It’s funny that this actually works. You may...
