Seth Taras is a veteran photographer with plenty of international awards under his belt as a testament to his skill and vision. He was recently commissioned by The History Channel to do a series entitled “Know Where You Stand”. The series aims to ‘act as a reminder of the past’s significance in our everyday lives, and the important role history plays in our future’. In the series, Taras expertly juxtaposed authentic World War II images over shots taken in modern times of the same places. This gives the viewer a thoughtful, if not chilling, reminder of the history behind common, everyday places most of us take for granted.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
