Time Travel With Marilyn Monroe

Some would say I’m obsessed with pictures of time travel. Heck, the most popular post on this blog is all about weird time travel images and videos.

But, honestly, what if it were possible? What if we could take our cameras and iPhones back through time, and capture pictures of ourselves in moments throughout history? Stand beside famous celebrities, mingle with people from eras past?

Photographer and graphic designer Flóra Borsi wondered just that, and set about creating her own gallery of faux time travel images, inserting herself into famous photographs of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, and even Harold Lloyd.

“How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to instagram, twitter, facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it? I imagined how I would to do! My inspiration was a Charlie Chaplin Movie.”

Here’s a brief sample, but be sure to check out her full Time Travel gallery at Behance. Her other photo galleries are awesome, too. You can also like her page on Facebook.
