A photographer has found the people he photographed 40 years ago and now they look completely different


Chris Porsz is a long-time street photographer. In the early 1980s he took many vivid photos of strangers. After 40 years, Porsz decided to look for the people in his photos. Thus the “Reunions” series was born. This allows us to compare the same people in the same places, years apart. This series has been published as a book, and a part of the money from it will be donated by Porsz to breast cancer research.


Chris Porsz spent 10 years trying to find the man he took a photo of in 1981.

The first photo was taken in 1981 – the girls waiting for the bus. They hadn’t seen each other since leaving school and met for the first time in 32 years to take a photo together.

These brothers worked in a shop between 1979 and 1996. Now retired, they were happy to return to stand behind the counter for this photo.

A friend asked Chris to take a photo of his sons. This is what they look like now.

Chris photographed this guy in 1980 next to his neighbour’s car. It wasn’t easy to find a similar Ford Cortina in 2021, but the photographer and his model took on the task.

This guy was working as a street cleaner in 1989. Chris Porsz took a photo of him and his new cleaning machine in 2020
