It doesn’t take a history nut to know that many European cities were ravaged and almost completely reduced to rubble during WWII. Luckily, not all was lost – some parts of them were either spared or rebuilt and we can still catch a glimpse of how they looked in their glory days.
Re.photos collects amazing photos of buildings and monuments during WWII and now that perfectly illustrate just how much Europe has changed throughout the years. Check out the amazing before and after photos in the gallery below!
I’m trying to get the effect of oil painting with irregular brushstrokes. My works are made from thousands of pieces of paper. Completion of such an image takes me between one week and one month depending on the degree of complexity.
“It’s a very far cry from the usual European florist, with its white-painted wooden planters,” Alberto Caiola says. He moved from Italy to Shanghai “for love” and opened Alberto Caiola Studio there. So he had plenty of East-West insights to offer when the online florist July’s Flower asked him for its first bricks-and-mortar store, to be located in a 1949 converted house in the city’s former French Concession. Intended as a brand experience to stand out in a crowded retail marketplace, his solution was a space that would not only showcase the flowers but also transform them into art.
