Photographer Tom Hussey created a series of pictures that will speak to you, no matter your age, race, beliefs or occupation. The Reflection photos illustrate just how much we change in our lives and how it seems to happen all at once, no matter how many years actually go by. These will grip your soul.
Tom spoke to a veteran right before his 80th birthday. His quotes inspired him to create the series.
“I can’t believe I’m going to be 80,” he told Hussey. “I feel like I just came back from the war. I look in the mirror and I
see this old guy.”
“It’s a universal condition — at some point in your life, you look in the mirror and say, ‘Wait a minute, how did I get
this old?’” said Tom.
“When you look in the mirror every day, you recognize yourself, but when you go back and look at a photo of yourself 20 years ago you say, ‘Wow, I really have changed.’”
Take time to appreciate every day, because these years will be gone before you know it.
