London Refurbishment

This is a photography project that I made during the 2012 year to
investigate the refurbishments and
changes of London. The aim of this project is to analyze the
connection between the Ancient and
Contemporary times.
The pictures have been taken using the photomontage technique.
Firstly I researched the antique watercolors that illustrated the London
areas in the past. I was able to find
them in the London archives and I took some pictures of them.
Further on, I visited the exact areas painted in the old watercolors and
I took some pictures of the new
elements, part of this age. In addition I made my self portrait while
playing the typical character of this
contemporary time. At the end I created new pictures combining these
three elements.

Are we conscious of the rapid transformation that is happening in our
