Photographer Bobby Neel Adams has created a literal wrinkle in time with his series Age Maps, an assortment of uncanny lifetime-spanning portraits spliced together. By taking “before and after pictures” to the next level, he pulls back the curtain on the mysteries of the face and the creeping onset of the ageing process. Adams has used a similar process in earlier hand-torn projects like Family Tree, which examines the poetry of genetics through a series of relative-merging portraits, and Couples– eerie proof that lovers really do tend to look alike.
