Уличный фотограф выслеживал своих жертв

40 лет назад фотограф Крис Порсз начал снимать портреты незнакомых людей на улицах своего родного города Питерборо в Англии. В течение последних нескольких лет Порсз выслеживал людей и просил их позировать перед его камерой для воссозданные старых снимков, которые были сделаны десятилетия назад. Крис назвал свой проект «Reunions» (воссоединения).

Некоторых людей было легко найти, в то время как других приходилось разыскивать, играя в детектива.

Проект представляет собой удивительную подборку снимков, демонстрирующих то, как люди меняются на протяжении многих лет своей жизни. Меняется не только внешность, но и вкусы в одежде. Фотографии представляют собой захватывающую коллекцию историй жизней и отражают не только людей, но и показывают, как меняется весь город.

Chris Porsz опубликовал фотографии в виде книги под названием Reunions, которая доступна за £18,50 в Великобритании и £32 на международном уровне.

An amateur photographer has amazingly tracked down people he snapped on the streets of his hometown 40 YEARS ago and painstakingly recreated more than 130 PICTURES in a remarkable new book. Paramedic Chris Porsz spent hours walking around the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the late 1970s and 80s, taking candid shots - without his subjects knowing and without recording their names or phone numbers. Three decades later, Chris, known as the "paramedic paparazzo," decided it would be fun to reconstruct a handful of his favourite photos from the past. Incredibly some of his long-lost subjects recognised themselves after he published their pictures in local and national papers, on his website and on Facebook. The reconstructions were such a success he was determined to do more and has spent the last SEVEN YEARS tracking down the people in his pictures and persuading them to pose once again. His hard work paid off and he has now published his photos in new book "Reunions," which comes out tomorrow (Fri Nov 4). SS COPY CATCHLINE Photos recreated after 40 YEARS

John, who is now a painter and decorator in the city, said: “The other lads were school friends and Pippa was a mutual friend, we used to hang out together and listen to punk music. I think I was about 15 and on the verge of becoming a punk.” John is still friends with Ade and they play in a band together. Gary emigrated to Australia, where he works as a project manager and Pippa now lives in Spain An amateur photographer has amazingly tracked down people he snapped on the streets of his hometown 40 YEARS ago and painstakingly recreated more than 130 PICTURES in a remarkable new book. Paramedic Chris Porsz spent hours walking around the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the late 1970s and 80s, taking candid shots - without his subjects knowing and without recording their names or phone numbers. Three decades later, Chris, known as the "paramedic paparazzo," decided it would be fun to reconstruct a handful of his favourite photos from the past. Incredibly some of his long-lost subjects recognised themselves after he published their pictures in local and national papers, on his website and on Facebook. The reconstructions were such a success he was determined to do more and has spent the last SEVEN YEARS tracking down the people in his pictures and persuading them to pose once again. His hard work paid off and he has now published his photos in new book "Reunions," which comes out tomorrow (Fri Nov 4). SS COPY CATCHLINE Photos recreated after 40 YEARS
