A Photographer Has Painstakingly Re-Created Photos Of Young People He Took In The '70s And '80s
Scenes around Peterborough were shot with the same people, decades apart.
An amateur photographer in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, has bridged a gap of four decades by pairing photos of strangers he snapped in the 1970s, '80s, and '90s with present-day portraits.
Paramedic Chris Porsz would spend hours walking around his hometown city of Peterborough. Decades later he tracked down the people he’d photographed on the streets and got them to pose in the same locations.
Porsz, known as "paramedic paparazzo”, found some of his long-lost subjects after they recognised themselves when they saw their pictures in local and national papers, on his website, and on Facebook. Porsz then spent seven years seeking out the people in his pictures and persuading them to pose once again.
All the photos can be found in his new book, Reunions. See a selection of some of the best time-travelling photos below, with all the original photos on the left and the re-created photos on the right.
