Family Takes the Same Photo For 24 Years to Show the Miracle of Growth


Back in 1991, London-based photographer Zed Nelson had a cool idea for a photo project he calls “The Family.” He wrote on his website:

“I began this project twenty-two years ago. The wife of a friend was nine months pregnant, and I had an idea – based on time-lapse photography – to photograph them together, on the same day every year, forever. I planned the shoots in a formal, almost scientific way. Every year, at the same time, against the same backdrop, under the same lighting. This way there are no distractions, only the miracle of growth and the changes of time and age.”

Nelson tells NextShark that “The project is planned to continue until I cease to exist, or until the family die, or refuse to continue.” Check out his other works here
