Fascinating Photos Of 100-Year-Olds And Their Younger Selves

Faces of Century is a photography series that pairs vintage before-and-after photos of 100-year-old Czechs. Though the faces are transformed dramatically between photos, it's fascinating to note the similarities. It's still the same person being photographed all those years later.

Some facial features disappear over time, others only become more distinguished. But it's these changes that fascinate Langer most.

“Time is shrinking,” Langer says, “as are the faces of the elders.”

“I wondered what changes and what remains on a human face and in a human mind in such a long time, and in such a short while in relative terms,” the photographer says. “I wondered how much loneliness of the old age weighs, and what memories stay in 100-year-old mind.”
