1908 camera lens captures NYC today

With the assistance of a mad Russian lens technician, photographer Timur Civan attached a vintage “Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat hand cranked cinema camera lens” circa 1908 onto his Canon EOS 5D Mark II. He then roamed Manhattan taking photos and instantly transported New York City back to a pre-digital era.
