Photographer Shoots Her Friends In 2000 And In 2017 To Show How Time Changes People.

A lot can happen in 17 years, particularly to our bodies. Just ask any A-list celebrity out there and they'll tell you that time does some interesting things to our faces. But you don't have to be a star to know that. You've probably gone to your high school or college reunion and seen how everyone else is different. Well, photographer Josephine Sittenfeld from Providence recently went to her college reunion, and it was inspiring. She decided to reach out to some friends to create a before and after portrait called Reunion. And let's just say that the difference between these shots from 2000 and 2017 are incredible.

#1. This is Josephine Sittenfeld's friend, Sophie, one of her classmates from Princeton.

You gotta love the change between 2000 and 2017. She looks feminine, delicate, and strong, but while she looked younger and tentative 17 years ago, she looks wiser, cautious and even more amazing in 2017.

#2. Sittenfeld rubbed elbows with the unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt before she was unbreakable.

In 2000, actress Ellie Kemper looked absolutely baby-faced and naïve. But she's aged well over the years, and her career skyrocketed after staring in epic comedy show,The Office.

#3. She photographed friends like Larry on medium-format film way back in 2000, but forgot about them.

Years later, Sittenfeld remembered she had them and decided to recreate some of them. As you can see, a lot has changed for Larry, like that baby he's now carrying in 2017. But he's still trapped behind the glass door.

#4. In the early shots, folks like Ethan look a bit chaotic and resistant in front of the camera.

Fast forward 17 years and you'll find that Ethan now knows how to tuck his shirt in and he's got a more relaxed body posture. He's also looking a little more handsome in those glasses.

#5. One thing Sittenfeld learned is that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Just look at Becky over here, who seems to have aged in reverse. She definitely looks much younger in 2017 than she did in 2000. But one thing that hasn't changed is her posing in front of a car with her hands in her pockets.
