One photographer has decided to visit the real shooting locations of movies like Halloween, Fight Club, Blade Runner, Wayne’s World, Back to the Future and more, but instead of just shooting a photo of the location without any context, he’s been posting them matched up perfectly with the original shots from the movies.
