journeys

When most people travel, they think of travelling in space. Whether it’s hiking through a national park or learning about a distant culture, it’s usually about the destination. This time, I decided to travel in time. Here are some scenes from China as they looked over the past hundred years. The old pictures were pulled from various books and websites. I then re-took each of them, matching the angle and focal length as closely as possible.<br><br>Featured on <a href="http://tv.cctv.com/2016/04/16/VIDE7Uh6SOTo2aX0fAzIEuuh160416.shtml">央視</a> | <a href="http://www.wired.com/2016/04/dheera-venkatraman-time-traveling-in-china/">Wired</a> | <a href="https://weather.com/travel/news/china-now-and-then-venkatraman">Weather Channel</a> | <a href="http://www.jiemian.com/article/608315.html">界面</a> | <a href="http://petapixel.com/2016/04/09/reshot-old-photos-see-china-changed-100-years/">PetaPixel</a> | <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/chinas-drastic-changes-in-urbanization-2016-5">Business Insider</a> | <a href="http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/981580.shtml">Global Times</a> | <a href="http://photo.popart.hk/newweb/archives/41658">攝影日報</a> | <a href="http://www.thepaper.cn/newsDetail_forward_1465590">澎湃新闻</a>
