Photographer Compares Aging Faces Across 60 Years

As we gradually grow older, the changes that take place on a daily basis are subtle. However, over longer periods of time, those minor wrinkles and graying hair become much more noticeable. To show these effects of time and aging on people, London-based photographer Ana Oliveira developed these two projects, entitled Identidades (Identities) and Identidades II (Identities II).
She had her subject provide portraits of themselves from the past and then recreated modern day shots to mimic the exact set-ups, poses, and outfits. For some of the people, the time difference between the first and second photograph spans up to 60 years. The final results are a pairing of two photographs, a visual reminder of the progressions of life and aging. Even though the portraits are of the same people, it's amazing to see how the tests of time can change their physical appearances. Although changing on the outside, it's good to remember that even as we slow down with age, we still have the same young and lively spirits on the inside!
