Age Maps: Split Portraits of People as Children and Adults

Age Maps is a series by photographer Bobby Neel Adams in which he juxtaposes two photos of the same individual at two different times in their lives. And he does it all in analog, no Photoshopping involved. “For each subject, Adams takes a childhood photo and a current photo, prints them at the same proportions, tears them in half, and glues the halves together. He says that this is to ‘telescope the slow process of aging into a single picture,’ and that ‘a jump of time is established at the tear.’ “


I love how this project serves as a the perfect amalgamation of Back to the Future and Genetic Portraits
