Categories: Photo project | Society

When a person gets old, a lot of things change. Wrinkles appear, thinning and graying hair… This list can be continued indefinitely. But there is always a person's personality. Photographer Jan Langer has created a photo project called Faces Of Century: I took 13 Czech centenarians who are over 100 years old, and compared the resulting pictures with photos of these people in their youth.
