16 Images of 30 Years Difference Through One Photographer's Lens
Chris Porsz is one hell of a dedicated photographer but that is just the tip of what makes him such an interesting artist. For almost 30 years beginning in the 1970's Porsz walked the streets of Petersburg, Cambridgeshire and used his camera to capture some incredibly iconic images of the times.
Now over 30 years later he has gone out of his way to track down over 130 of his subjects to recreate his favorite photos from decades ago. One cannot imagine the dedication it took to put that much time and effort into hunting down strangers he met on the streets so long ago but he was determined and his efforts paid off.
His recreations are incredible. They are vivid and tell a story of time. With no words, his images speak volumes. For those of you who desire to know the story that coincides with these incredible photos, Porsz has released a book with their stories and the side by side photos that show what a difference 30 years can make.
