Photographer finds people in his old clicks to recreate the same moments again, the results are magical reunions!

It’s the same people, the same selfie pose – but at a closer look the photo seems to change into a time capsule. Scroll down to see how this photographer did a magical job of recreating some precious shots that he took some 40 years ago.

Re-living the cherished old moment again is something we can desire of but can never make it come true. One photographer, eventually created these Reunions.

A Paramedic and photographer Chris Porsz, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, spent countless hours taking photographs back in the early ’80’s around his neighborhood and tried for almost seven years to find people in his old photographs to pose again for his new ones. The results are quite magical.

The couple went on to get married and had two children, and they didn’t even know that this picture has been taken until they were contacted by Chris recently.

And even the guard in the background decided to make an appearance…

3. Pictured here is Jennifer Hall, who worked at a local fruit and vegetable stall at Peterborough Market.

“I think I was about 17 when Chris took my photograph. I was aware that someone was taking my picture at the time but I wasn’t sure who or what it was for,” said Jennifer.NTD Photo

Now married with two children, Jennifer works as a civil servant.

One sister, Shehnaz (seen on far left), said, “We often used to perch in the window and watch what was going on in the road.”

While they no longer live together, the couple had twins and left the city in the 90’s to pursue travel.

When reflecting on the photograph, Tina said, “I remember the photo being taken, it was a brilliant time. I had different styles of punk hair-do for quite a few years.”NTD Photo
