When you’re the editor of a DIY decor website, you come across a lot of “before and afters” Like, a lot. Like, so many, if I see another shoddy, worn brown piece of furniture with the phrase “before” brandished across it in some curlicue typeface, I very well may just…well, really appreciate this photo series by French photographer Sacha Goldberg.
In it, he asked random joggers at the Bois de Boulogne park in Paris if he could take a quick post-run photo. A week later, the same folks were invited to come to Goldberg’s professional photo studio in their best for an “after” protrait. The results are strangely intimate and understandably endearing.
He says, “I wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society…The difference was very surprising.”
