Across Time

I stopped by Ilva’s blog today and she mentioned a very interesting photographic artist named Bobby Neel Adams. I went by his website and looked at his “Age-Maps”. As Ilva put it, his Age-Maps “both delight and disturb”. I had a similar reaction - plus an immediate desire to try my hand at the technique. So with all due respect and in the sincere hope that Mr. Adams perceives imitation as the sincerest form of flattery, I made this photo composite. It’s Chuck merged from two photos; one at age 7 and the other at age 64.

And yes, I know what a truly good sport Chuck is!

Hi DMM -
The smile is still the same and so is the twinkle in his eyes, so I have to agree with you!

Hi B2b -
No matter what the positive adjective is we apply to Mr. Adams' "Age Maps", disturbing is definitely the other side of the coin. I suspect that pleases him!
