ELDERLY PEOPLE LOOK AT THEIR YOUNGER REFLECTIONS IN THIS BEAUTIFUL PHOTO SERIES BY TOM HUSSEY

Curated from Digital Synopsis

“Reflections of The Past” is an award-winning photo series by commercial advertising photographer Tom Hussey. The photographs show an elderly person looking pensively at the reflection of his/her younger self in the mirror. Hussey was inspired by a World War II veteran who said “I can’t believe I’m going to be 80. I feel like I just came back from the war. I look in the mirror and I see this old guy.”

It’s beautiful, touching and something everyone will go through at some point in their lives. Check out the series below.
