40 Years Ago a Photographer Captured Random People, and Now He Tracked Them Down to Make a Historical Reunion

Chris Porsz, a paramedic by profession, spent his free time in the ’70s and ’80s on the streets of Peterborough, England, taking candid shots of people passing by. Decades later, he had the clever idea of tracking these strangers down and capturing them in a similar way. This unique project is called Reunions II, the long-awaited sequel to the work he created 10 years ago.

Bright Side decided to share some photos with you from Chris’s collection. Reunions II proves that some things never change, no matter how much time passes.
