Young Me, Now Me
Identical Photos, Different Decades
By Ze Frank

Amazing photo pairs—one a cherised childhood snapshot, the other a spot-on accurate, heartwarming and often hilarious modern re-creation

Everyone has childhood photographs that make them smile, laugh, even tear up. Young Me, Now Me starts with dozens of these wonderful old snapshots then blasts the cute quotient into the stratosphere by showing a second version of the same photo taken decades later by participants who have recreated the location, dress, pose, facial expressions and every other little detail in the original—with eerily accurate and highly amusing results. Launched in 2008, the Young Me, Now Me blog has become a phenomenon, with over one-and-half million people visiting it and thousands sending in amazing photo pairs. This book presents the best of the best of these submissions, along with charming anecdotes and colorful backstories for each. From a balding middle-aged man in short pants, white dress shirt, red tie, sandals, and socks squatting behind a tricycle just as he did 40 years ago to a painstakingly recreated family photo showing six generations in one frame, each image pair in Young Me, Now Me proves — in the most entertaining way possible — that as much as things change, cherished moments remain forever.
