Being a photographer is a wonderful and responsible task. As a photographer, you are documenting the world and its people from your own perspective, adding to the collective history of mankind. Even if you don’t see photography as a big deal, it is. Photos are some of the most accurate and up-close forms of documentation available, and to make art out of them is truly a gift.
Chris Porsz, a photographer from the United Kingdom, understands the importance of the photos he has taken over the years. He has created a project called “Reunions” in which he uses photographs he took in the 1970s to track down the people in the photos and recreate the scenes in which they were taken.
Incredibly, he was able to reach out to many of the people who were in his pictures from over 40 years ago. Bringing them back together, he recreated the scenes they were in, using the same locations as much as possible. Even though the years have passed and the people have grown older, their faces, stories, and emotions remain the same.
What Chris has done in this project is to recreate history in two different points in time. It is heartwarming to see these types of projects that are bound by time, emotions, and stories that come back to life.
