A Window in the Past: Rethymno, Crete

Window in the Past is a project in which I combine photos of the past with photos of the present.
Every photo is captured at the exact same spot but with 50-90 years difference.
This project is about learning and respecting our history and where we came from.​​​​​​​


Lyceum: 1930, 2017


Prefecture: ~1930, 2017


Town Hall: 1947, 2018


Statue of the Unknown Soldier: ~1930, 2018


Sundial: 1943, 2017 (Photo take by a German Soldier)


Guora Gate: 1945, 2017


Rimondi Fountain: ~1950, 2018


Metropolitan Church: 1950, 2018 (Built in 1894)


Egyptian Lighthouse: ~1950-1970, 2017


Venetian Harbour: 1950, 2017


This project is not finished and will never be.
I am always in search of old photos of my hometown, Rethymno.
History is a great teacher and "Without History, there will be no Future"

Thanks for Watching!
