Time Travel: Same People Photographed As Young Adults And 100-Year-Olds


It might be difficult to believe that taking photographs was once a privilege just a century ago. Photographer Jan Langer decided to make a project that compares the photographs of people who are over 100 years old with their younger versions. Langer explains:

"This set of comparative photos explores the similarities and the differences in appearance and in physiognomy. The characteristics of personality change throughout life but it seems as if individual nature remains rooted in the abyss of time."
