Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse


A Dutch historian has put together a haunting photo series that merges the past and the present. For “Ghosts of War,” Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse superimposed images of World War II soldiers onto images of present-day European streets where they once fought.


Teeuwisse started her project after finding some 300 WWII photographs at a flea market. She then went about visiting the sites in the images and re-photographing the backgrounds. Teeuwisse said visiting the sites had a powerful emotional effect. “I knew what happened there, but knowing the exact spot of some detail will etch it into your visual memory,” she said. http://www.thedaily.com
