This Family Took The Same Photo Every Year For 22 Years

Zed Nelson is a London-based photographer who embarked on a photographic journey through time to take the same picture of the same family in the same conditions over the course of 22 years.

The project, entitled “The Family,” is a time capsule that encompasses the growth of his friend’s family through two decades on the same day each year. Even though the poses and the faces are the same, the images ask the question of how each member grew over that span.

Click next to delve deeper into the family’s history as told by individual, yet similar shots.

 

#12 Setting Up The Shots

When Nelson’s friend’s family agreed to participate in the project, the wife was already 9-months pregnant. On the same day each year, the family met with Nelson who set up the same lighting conditions with the same backdrop. This caused no distractions, just the focus on the growth of each family member.
