I love seeing how creative people can be!

This project just floats my boat to see how someone has taken images from the past and made them something new! Creativity is still alive on planet Earth.

Artist Transforms Historic Glass-Plate Photos Into Lively & Slightly Surreal Work of Art

Via the Vintage News:

We are always thrilled to stumble across a project that gives a new refreshing approach to history. Australian photographer, Jane Long has taken a collection of old glass-plate images by Romanian photographer Costica Acsintem, and with the magic of PhotoShop, turned them in a lively and slightly surreal work of art.

We love what Jane Long has done with the photos, the collection with an adequate name Dancing with Costică was exhibited as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale last year.
