10 Incredible GIFs Showing How Aging Changes Our Appearance

10 Incredible GIFs Showing How Aging Changes Our Appearance

It's always amazing to see childhood photos of old people you know and see how they looked when they were our age (or younger). Sometimes they look almost identical, sometimes they look like 2 different people. Aging is something unpredictable and there is no real way to know how it's going to affect each face and what is going to be the 'final result'. In this interesting project, Jan Langer photographed 10 elderly people to match a photo taken of them 50-60 years earlier. Check out the before/after in 10 GIFs below.

One noticeable thing in all photos is the known 'random fact' that the ears and nose are 2 body parts that never stops growing and getting bigger - from birth to death.

Not as good as that other one where you hardly notice them aging over time.

That's amazing. I wanted to know all of their stories!!!!!!! And I agree, I would have liked it better if it slid from young to old! But very nice set of photos!

The last frame is a video clip and transforms young-old-young-old

I wish they went from young to old instead of old to young. Fascinating just the same!

I loved this idea, when the time comes I would like to do one to incorporate it in my mum and dads slide show then all the photos in between, my mum and dads face now as older (not old yet) show me how many years of love they have had in their faces and what they have achieved in their lives. it is not scary or horrible, its beautiful, it happens, to all of us and at least we can look forward to getting old, how many people don't get that chance.

This is the worst use of GIF I've ever seen. I expected to see a progression of people over time, not some amateur PowerPoint transition effect. What a total waste of time and electrons.

yes, especially when simple morph software has existed since 2000

Some of those people were better looking old than they were young.

Our youth dominated culture insures that history will repeat itself.

Damn, I don't want to get old! whoops... too late.

the alternative is not staying young, it is to stop living.
happier now though definitely older

ekheart's picture

neat idea, but i think it would have been better to start young and fade to old.. the bar thing is strange, and distracting.

However old and infirm someone is today, they will someday look back and wish they were as young and fit as they were at this moment. Carpe diem!
