25+ People Who Recreated Their Old Photos and Traveled to the Past for a Second

5 years ago

For several years now, a movement where people recreate photos from their childhood has been really popular. The users try to consider every little detail: the location, the clothes, the pose, the facial expressions, and the accessories. In the end, they get such a great result, that they seem to have traveled back into the past.

We at Bright Side think that recreating old photos is a great thing to do with your family. Because when you look at these comparisons, you realize that time passes extremely fast and love and friendship only get stronger.

“It’s all I wanted for my 60th birthday.”

“In the first pic, it’s my dad and daughter in 1996. The second pic is my dad and my granddaughter, yesterday. I love how we recreated this, 23 years later. He was really opposed to taking it until he saw how sweet it turned out.”

“For Father’s Day this year I recreated my favorite picture of my dad. It’s him after he graduated high school in 1980 and me after graduating today.”

3 generations, same place, same picture

“Me and my cousins recreated a photo taken more than 18 years ago.”

“Me as a baby wearing a ridiculous wig vs. Me at 21 with the hair I ended up growing”

“It took a lot of searching, but my fiancé and I finally found the same spot in Central Park where my grandparents took this photo back in the 40s”

This group of friends posed around the same car 30 years later.

“Holding my cousin on the same rooftop in Spain, 21 years apart”

“My family’s favorite pic: 20 years in between, and we still bully the little one.”

“My 4 brothers and I in 1997 vs. 2017”

“My mom saved my sweater from 1989. Here’s my son wearing it 30 years later.”

“I’ve never been particularly photogenic...”

After 22 years, same place, same people

There’s about 13 years between these photos.

Some things don’t change even after a long time
