Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Most of us enjoy looking back on our lives to see how we’ve changed over the years, and it’s incredible to see differences in our present selves that we may not have noticed as they happened.

Twenty-five years ago, Zed Nelson started a project to explore this concept. Zed photographed a friend’s family once a year, in the same pose, for a quarter-century. The result is a monument to his artistry, and to the power of time itself.
