How We Change

How We Change

Photographer Tom Hussey created a series of pictures that will speak to you, no matter your age, 

race, beliefs or occupation. The Reflection photos illustrate just how much we change in our lives and 

how it seems to happen all at once, no matter how many years actually go by.


Tom spoke to a veteran right before his 80th birthday. His quotes inspired him to create the series.

I cant believe Im going to be 80, he told Hussey. I feel like I just came back from the war. I look in the mirror and I see this old guy.

Its a universal condition at some point in your life, you look in the mirror and say, Wait a minute, how did I get this old? said Tom.

The idea for doing these images was a person looking in the mirror and seeing what they remember.

When you look in the mirror every day, you recognize yourself, but when you go back and look at a photo of yourself 20 years ago you say, Wow, I really have changed.

You get to some milestone age 20, 40, or 80 and you cant believe that much time has gone by.

Take time to appreciate every day, because these years will be gone before you know it.
