Past meets present to joyous effect in this week's Happy Monday

Not only the fashion director of Esquire, Nick Sullivan is also a dedicated photographer and downright perfectionist, as demonstrated by his amazing Instagram feed. Sullivan’s new favourite pastime sees the British-born fashion expert scouring the Internet in search of old photographs of London, Paris and New York and meticulously locating the same exact spot, inserting the picture from the past into one of the present space to demonstrate the passing of time. From a picture of Colette sitting in the portico of the Palais Royale to a portrait of Bob Dylan walking down a tree-lined avenue in Central Park and the Rolling Stones taking a stroll in Covent Garden, Sullivan’s "doubletakes" become joyful accounts of the evolution of some of the world’s most-loved cities. Today we bring you our favourite photomontages with the hope of spreading a little weekly cheer.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
