Go look, and tell me which ones you liked best. I’ll say what my favorites were in the comments section. I loved the one above because of how perfectly the boy presaged the man; if you knew facial musculature well, you could look at that young face and predict exactly where the lines would come in 20 years. Others are shocking by how much the subject has changed. I’d be very curious to hear what these pictures evoked for you. Thoughts of your childhood self, what has remained, what has faded.
