Young Me, Now Me: Identical Photos, Different Decades
Ulysses Press, 2011 - Humor - 152 pages
FAVORITE CHILDHOOD PHOTOS RECREATED WITH AMAZINGLY ACCURATE AND HIGHLY AMUSING RESULTS!
Open to any page in Young Me, Now Me and you’ll see a cherished childhood snapshot alongside a brilliant reproduction taken decades later. Nothing is overlooked in these amazing photo pairs—family members have been rounded up in the same spot in the old backyard, special clothes have been sewn to match kiddie outfits, poses and facial expressions are perfectly replicated, and, if needed, spaghetti sauce is smeared from cheek to cheek to imitate the explosive lunchtime of a happy baby. While these efforts at accuracy are impressive and often hilarious, the amazing thing is what people didn’t do—change. No matter how many years passed between the old and new photos, you can still see that same curve of the smile, angle of the face and look in the eyes. Here is the thread connecting years ago to now.
Also included are charming anecdotes that tell the surprising, intriguing and heartwarming back stories of the individuals who re-created these strange and wonderful pictures.
