What a fascinating and well-conceived project ‘Friends Then & Now’ is—a study in time and humanity—and the result, both beautiful and haunting, can’t help but remind us how precious a thing a human being is.

A couple of years ago  I  paired my new passport photo with a self-portrait from 1970. That prompted me to dig into the archives of my portraits to create similar then-and-now pairings. When I did not have either an old or new image, I “borrowed” one from the Internet or was kindly provided with one by my subjects. Both image pairs and pairs with stories are presented here.
