These are some of the coolest photos I have ever seen. Awesome idea.

http://www.tomhussey.com/#/SERIES%20%20/Reflections/1

Hat tip to the Huffington Post. From their article:

"Do you feel your age? In his wistful series "Mirrors," Dallas-based photographer Tom Hussey captures the discrepancy between how old we look and how young we feel with sharp tenderness.

The photographer arrived upon the concept for his bittersweet series after a conversation with an 80-year-old World War II veteran who couldn't believe how quickly time had passed. "He commented that he didn’t understand how he could be 80 years old as he felt he was still a young man. He just didn’t feel it was possible he could be 80 years old," Hussey told the American Society of Media Photographers.

Hussey channeled the separation between body and mind in his mirror series, collapsing decades before our very eyes. Firemen, teachers, scientists and nurses confront their older selves in the mirror wearing retro uniforms and sporting rosy cheeks. To cast the shoot, Hussey and his team found convincing dopplegangers separated by 40 or 50 years. The results are realistic and poignant, capturing the perplexing relationship we have with our changing bodies over time."
