Hungarian photographer and retoucher Flóra Borsi created a popular series of photos last year titled “Photoshop in Real Life.” The images imagined what various Photoshop Tools might be used for if they had physical powers in our world, and were quickly shared across the web.

Now Borsi is back with a new set of images that show off her Photoshopping prowess. Titled “Time Travel,” the photos show Borsi inserted into various historical photographs of famous individuals.

Here’s what Borsi writes in the project’s description:

How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to instagram, twitter, facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it? I imagined how I would to do!

The photograph above appears to be a standard photograph of Elvis Presley performing at a concert. Look a little closer, and you’ll see Borsi standing in the front row with her cell phone camera pointed at Presley:
