Photographer recreates 40-yr-old snaps with the same people

Chris Porsz reenacts photos he took 40 years ago with the same people and the results are amazing!

Chris Porsz before and after street photography

Almost 40 years later, Porsz has spent hours on end, tracking down those people to create real life before and after photos of them.

The gig resulted in 135 beautiful reunion photos and the transformations are stunning.

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.
