ed Nelson, an award-winning British photographer, has left a mark on the art world with his realism and coverage of controversial issues.
He took a family´s photo in the same way for over 2 decades. All of the pictures were not only taken at the same time, but they were also taken under the same light, and against the same backdrop. The resulting pictures provide a breathtaking time-lapse that shows “only the miracle of growth and the changes of time and aging.”
Now, you can see the completed project and witness the growth of the family right before your eyes!
The project began in 1991 when the wife of one of his friends was pregnant and he had the idea of taking a picture of the family as they grew over the years.
The very first year of the project was 1991, with the young boy being just an infant, and the parents being proud, excited and likely quite overwhelmed, new parents.
They would not only come to represent the modern family in many ways, but they would also come to represent just how much the world changed in a matter of two decades.
