President De Gaulle on the Champ Elysees 1

A clever collection of composite photos of the liberation of Paris during world war II by French art director Julien Knez. He brings together scenes from 1940s Paris with peaceful pictures of the city we visit now.

Knez says he put the striking collection together to celebrate the 71st anniversary of the city’s liberation from Nazi control in August 1944.
