Photographer Captured Pictures Of Her Friends In 2000 And 2017 Depicts How People Age Differently

Time doesn’t stop for any of us.

The only thing we can do is try to stay with it and not lag behind. Photographer Josephine Sittenfeld wanted to highlight the change time can bring. So in 2000, she created portraits of her college classmates and then re-created them in 2017. The difference was huge and yet subtle at the same time.

Sittenfeld was a junior at Princeton University. She had photographed her friends on medium-format film in 2000. The shots, however, ended up collecting dust in her parents’ closet.

Last spring though, as her fifteen-year college reunion was approaching, she remembered the old photos and decided to recreate them during the reunion.
