Although one or two people who died over the course of the last 40 years, were replaced with siblings or children, the effect was no less remarkable.

Porsz who photographed everyone from police officers to street punks, from lovers to siblings, has put the photos together in a book he titled 'Reunion', with short texts by writer, Jo Riley, telling the stories of the people in the pictures.

We have gathered 10 of these remarkable before and after photos. Take a look in the photo gallery above.
