For her project titled “Identities,” London-based photographer Ana Oliveira created a series of before and after photos that show the effects of time and aging.
The before image in each diptych is a portrait captured decades ago — some as long as 60 years ago. Oliveira then shot a new portrait of the person that closely resembles the style and pose of the older image.
This “passage of time” concept has become quite popular in recent years. For a similar project, check out “Back to the Future” by photographer Irina Werning and Ze Frank’s “Young Me Now Me” project.
