New Trend on the Web

History Pin

Combining Google Map and digital photography, History Pin creates a digital history map of the world. Users can upload photos from their personal collections of places around the world and pin them on the map, along with interesting stories or special recollections of that place.

The site features both new and old photos. Through them, users can search for any place in the world at any time and compare how much that place has changed.

Besides being shocking and beautiful, his action art also makes a statement about the difficulties of living in the modern age.
