In the latest installment of InsuranceQuotes’ “Hidden Costs Video Series,” the insurance info provider put together an aging video using moving pictures of people from the ages of 0-102. A lot like the viral video of photographer Frans Hofmeester’s daughter Lotte, it shows the process of aging through tiny snippets of video.
The video is really about the hidden costs of aging, covering the facts from an inspirational and heartwarming angle rather than the depressing version where costs skyrocket as we age. And even though they skip ages 81 through 101, we still enjoyed the journey all the way from Eason at age 0 to Evelyn at age 102. We hope you do too.
1 to 100 Years Project is an awesome portrait project by Belgian photographer Edouard Janssens in which he photographed 100 women and 100 men at each age between 1 and 100. His goal was to show the aging process in a positive manner and to provide an interesting visualization of the link between generations. He didn’t handpick the subjects either — all the participants volunteered through the project’s website (excluding the kids, of course). Read more…
Two days ago we shared Frans Hofmeester’s wonderful time-lapse video of his daughter aging from birth to 12 in three minutes. That video has gone viral on the Internet, receiving a whopping four million views in less than a week. Hofmeester is actually doing the same project for his son Vince: the video above shows the boy aging from birth to age 9 in two minutes.
After his daughter Lotte was born, Dutch photographer Frans Hofmeester began creating weekly videos of her to document her growth. Lotte recently turned 12, and Hofmeester decided to edit all the footage so far into this amazing time-lapse video showing twelve years of growing up in just under three minutes.
AgeMaps is a project by photographer Bobby Neel Adams in which he does “photo surgery” on portraits to show two different moments in a person’s life in the same image. For each subject, Adams takes a childhood photo and a current photo, prints them at the same proportions, tears them in half, and glues the halves together. He says that this is to “telescope the slow process of aging into a single picture,” and that “a jump of time is established at the tear.” Read more…
There’s plenty of time lapse projects documenting the passage of time and the process of aging with human portraits, but how about with animals? This video going viral on the Interwebs right now was creating by making a photo a day of Dunder, a German Shepherd, and shows him growing from an 8 week old puppy to a 1 year old adult. If you have a pet, this concept could be a fun project for getting it involved in your photography!
Noah Kalina’s famous “everyday” project spanned six years of his life, but began when he was 19 years old. “Natalie Time Lapse” is similar, but begins when the subject is born and ends when she is ten years old. Even though the pose and expression are far from being as precise as in Kalina’s video, it’s quite interesting watching someone go from newborn to ten-year-old.
