It’s the 21st century, and the world has seen some dramatic changes. If anyone from the past somehow manages to come back to life, he/she will surely lose their mind by seeing how the world has developed. Being born in the modern era, we usually forget how things were before us. People could only know what someone looked like based on an artist’s subjective vision or a black-and-white picture. Despite the struggles of the artists, paintings can rarely achieve the level of authenticity that pictures can. And thus, people often wonder how some of the most famous historical figures really looked with all of the subjectiveness removed from the image.
Bas Uterwijk, a photographer from Amsterdam, helps us to find the answer to this aching query. He recreates photos of historical and fictional figures to show people how they really looked like. In this post, we have compiled 20 photos from Uterwijk’s gallery, and they are quite stunning. Scroll on and enjoy, peeps. Don’t forget to share this post with your friends.
