A 20-year-old model photographed as if she were 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 years old

A brilliant series of photographs I stumbled across one day, which really embody the magic of lighting, makeup and good photography. I think my favourite is the age 10 photo, probably because it’s something we don’t see very often…films are a great example of a medium where the opposite trick has been used, aging. The reverse though, making someone look younger is quite rare. And I’m not counting anti-aging beauty product ads since half the time they have 20 year old models advertising wrinkle creams for a target audience roughly twice their age! Unless they are actually trying to convince 20 year olds to use those creams on account of their non-existent wrinkles…

Anyways…I think that making the 20 year old model in this series look like she is 10 is quite a feat, she just looks so young and innocent and naturaly so!  It seems to be the biggest transformation out of all of them. The angle is brilliant because its shot just so that she actually looks so convincing…. small, and quite bony, and developing (with a seemingly flat chest, teeth that look a bit crooked cause they are still growing and aligning).

    This is an incredible series! I love to see posts like this that demostrate the capabilities of photography in our time. My favorite is the “50” year old. Something about the shot reminds me of classic film stars from the 30’s and 40’s.
