Retronaut

Retronaut is a photographic time machine. It is a digital collection of tens of thousands of pictures from across the past, all with one thing in common – each one has the power to warp your sense of time .

Our team mines archives online and offline, unearthing pictures that seem not to belong to the time when they were created, that dissolve away the years like tarnish on a ring, that take our collective map of the past and tear tiny holes in it
– holes through which we glimpse the real past lying underneath our map.

These are pictures that show not so much the past as they show “now” – but another version of now.
