Ever wondered what these famous locales of Delhi looked like in early 20th century, well you can’t blame I’m a day dreamer after all! Crossing those old Delhi streets thinking what it used to look like or foe that matter how different was the traffic at the Rashrapati Bhawan back then?
Well to answer all your queries, Yuvraj Khanna, a 24-year-old lawyer in High Court by profession and a photographer/ instagrammer by passion once again took out his lens to provide a glimpse of the Capital’s history. But his are no usual landscape shots. He captures the city’s past and present by juxtaposing old images from the early 1900s with those from the present giving you a complete time travel experience.
Yuvraj Khanna says
“I had a fascination with the history, New Delhi is the 11th city we saw today. I want to show how the city has changed over centuries so I capture it the way it has evolved. I didn’t want stereotypical before and after images, therefore clicked a sync picture. Through these images I want to present the glorious side of Delhi.”
“I sourced all the pictures online and cut them in a manner that was very monument specific so as to create a visual juxtaposition. I selected around 50 pictures but all of them didn’t turn out correctly and only 11 created picture perfect scenes.”
