If our ancestors 200 years ago got an iPad or wireless headphones, their world definitely would have turned upside the head.
Photographer from Los Angeles Zinzani Meng launched a photo project called “gold rush”. For his photo shoot he invited the models to dress in costumes of the 19th century and to take up the gadgets that are part of the everyday life of an ordinary modern man: iPad, Apple Watch, iPod, wireless headphones, gamepad, electronic cigarette.
According to the artist, such anachronisms allow you to feel the depth of the abyss that separates us from our ancestors, who lived in the 19th century. The poses of the models typical of the portraits of the time, and therefore very surprising to see people have Beats headphones or a wireless headset.
The artist believes his project is paving a kind of dialogue between the two eras and generations.
