Old paintings animated to life

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro brought back the expressive force of gestures of beauty that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces. It almost seems as if we could walk through the untouched nature and watch the angels sing their chorus. A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance. Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of life, inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat as infinitum. Indeed a beautiful work of fleeting time.

In this series titled New York City: Then and Now, photographer and historian Marc Hermann overlaps black and white crime scenes with the same exact locations as they exist today. He says, “My inspiration is drawn not from fictional characters, but rather from the real people who documented life in New York through the mid-20th century.”
To create each compilation, Hermann relied on Daily News Pix, a photo archive of the New York Daily News across the years. He pulled historic crime scenes of fires, plane crashes, gas explosions, suicides, and murders, and perfectly blended them with the colorful scenes of today. Each memorable moment will have New Yorkers thinking twice about the places in which they work, live, and reside.
