‘Mirror’ series captures elderly subjects’ reflections of their younger selves
Do you feel your age? In his wistful series “Mirrors,” Dallas-based photographer Tom Hussey captures the discrepancy between how old we look and how young we feel with sharp tenderness.
The phoographer arrived upon the concept for his bittersweet series after a conversation with an 80-year-old World War II veteran who couldn’t believe how quickly time had passed. “He commented that he didn’t understand how he could be 80 years old as he felt he was still a young man. He just didn’t feel it was possible he could be 80 years old,” Hussey told the American Society of Media Photographers.
