18 Images Of Historical Figures Recreated As If They Were Living Today.

If you saw them on the street you wouldn’t recognize most of them.

Have you ever imagined what history books would be like if we could not only learn about historical events, but also see how the protagonists of such well-known scenarios possibly were?

That would be an amazing idea, wouldn’t it? Becca Saladin , a professional graphic designer, decided to bring this idea to life.

He recreated modern versions of historical figures as a hobby, just over a year ago. His work was so successful that she created ‘ Royalty Now’ , a series of images showing past and present historical portraits or reconstructions, in case these people are alive today.

The artist has always been fond of history and reports that when she was studying the subject, as a child, she wanted to know what the faces and faces of the people that the books talked about so much were like. Then, combining her Photoshop skills, her dream came true
