I stumbled across these photos by Tom Hussey's Reflections Collection. According to an interview with PetaPixel the idea first struck when Hussey was talking to a WWII veteran named Gardner. On the cusp of his 80th birthday, Gardner opined that he still felt like a young man. That conversation lead to the inspiration behind this series. How neat is this?! These are actual photos of these people when they were young. I love looking at pictures of my grandparents and seeing who they were when they were my age and hearing their stories. I think these photos capture the stories of these folks beautifully.
