This Profound Photo Series Of The Elderly Viewing Themselves Young Again Will Make You Cry. These Are Beautiful.

Photographer Tom Hussey spoke recently with an 80-year old World War II veteran, who told him that he “didn’t understand how he could be 80 years old, as he felt he was still a young man. He Just didn’t feel it was possible he could be 80 years old”.

Hussey took this moment to heart, and decided to create a series of photos that highlighted the separation between mind and body before the eyes of his subjects. He found a series of doppelgangers separated by about 50 years, and the results are both poignant and beautiful.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that captures the complicated relationship that we have with our bodies over time so perfectly. Be sure to check out Hussey’s page by clicking here. And don’t forget to share the beautiful series with your friends below.
