If you check out some of the photos from Chinese photographer Silin Liu, you’ll often see her sitting on the beach with Albert Einstein, trying to play with Andy Warhol’s hair or enjoying a picnic with Audrey Hepburn.

Although it may seem that Liu somehow managed to find the secret of time traveling, the truth is that she is just creative and really good with Photoshop.

These photographs are part of Liu’s ongoing series I’m Everywhere, in which she places herself alongside some of history’s most famous people and important moments, wanting to explore the role of photography in culture and the way this medium is used to tell the stories from the past.

“Every time we take a photograph and share it, it is like a ritual or ceremony,” she says. “We are lost in this irrational worship, meanwhile emitting an entirely new version of ourselves, or, say we are releasing our pent-up selves; such a process expels the fear and helplessness of the environment, and the original but disordered environment maybe also gives us the freedom and opportunity to refelect our fate.”

Check out some of her remarkable works below.
