History often feels far removed from modern life, especially concerning topics and events that humans prefer to think they've progressed from. Given that the world can change in an instant, pieces of the past easily get forgotten or lost along the way. Luckily, the past remains alive through the practice of photography, ensuring modern human history shall always be documented.

The photos here offer a portal into the past to eras that will never be repeated, which is sometimes a good thing. Though you will never experience these moments entirely, you can gain a bit of insight into what life was like at that time, and how you may have lived.
