Chris Porsz, a street photographer, tracked down people he took pictures of 30 years ago and came up with a book dubbed ‘Reunions’ based on an entirely unique concept.
Life has a weird way of unfolding for everyone, and what better way to capture the essence of life than to take photographs of random people on the street 30 years apart? Chris Porsz, a street photographer, came up with this unique idea. Chris is a paramedic by profession and a street photographer outside work.
In order to show how life changes over a span of decades, Chris decided to come up with a book under the moniker ‘reunions’ that features images of the same people over the span of 30 years. According to the author,
“This book has been nearly 40 years in the making, and I believe the project is totally unique.”
Here are some of the entries from the book.
I’ll start with my favorite from the lot. These are Tony and Sally Wilmot, who had no idea the picture was being taken. After the first picture was taken, they went on to get married and have two kids.
Another picture worth a thousand words that depict how life is in a glance.

A picture of a rebellious teenager worth a thousand words. The recent picture shows how despite having the same charm Xenia Gordon embraced life and became a mother of three children and later a loving grandmother.
The images also shed light on how beautiful friendship is. Thanks to Chris, people who have lost contact came back together again.
