  • So many things change when a person ages. Wrinkles, changing hairlines, graying hair, the list goes on... But one thing that always stays the same is a person's identity.

    For his photo project called Faces of Century, photographer Jan Langer captured over a dozen Czech centenarians and compared their pictures of when they were young, and when they were over 100 years old.

    “How these people see their life after such a period? The majority of those I approached agree that with advancing age life is faster; until, at last, the life will pass in a moment,” Langer says. “Time is shrinking, as are the faces of the elders. I wondered what changes and what remains on a human face and in a human mind in such a long time, and in such a short while in relative terms. I wondered how much loneliness of the old age weighs, and what memories stay in 100-year-old mind.”

    This set of comparative photos (of archive portraits from the family album and contemporary portraits from the present time) explores the similarities and the differences in appearance and in physiognomy. The characteristics of personality change throughout life but it seems as if individual nature remains rooted in the abyss of time.

    The aging process is what it is.  You age.  What's the alternative?  Death at an early age?  Who made this a 12 year old because either you die young or you live out your life and die old - that's the facts folks.

    people disrespect the elderly, and treat them like children when in fact for many, their faculties are there and their mind works fine...inside they feel 30 or 40 trapped in that frail old body, the same way you, reader, _feels_ younger than you are and remember 5 years ago like it was yesterday...when you remember 10 and 20 years ago like it's yesterday, but your legs don't move the same, life is real then....and never forget, if you're lucky (or not, depending on your view) you'll be that old as well...
