The Key to Fun!

Time-Travelling Photoshops of Stars Hanging Out With Younger Selves

Spread the word if you like it! 😉

Artist Ard Gelinck has figured out time travel… sort of. Through his ongoing “then and now” series, he features current-day celebrities posing with their past selves. His masterful use of Photoshop makes the portraits look seamless. It’s as if Gelinck discovered some sort of wormhole that allowed the two ages to stand side by side. Matching the tone, scale, and shadows, his patchwork of images feel cohesive as a single picture. They’re sure to make you do a double take.

Aside from the novelty and skill in Gelinck’s images, it’s fascinating to see how some of the world’s biggest stars have changed over time. Some, like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have grown up in the public eye; we’ve known them since they were little kids. They’ve transformed from cute sitcom stars to women who receded from the spotlight and into their roles as fashion moguls. Other then and now celebrity portraits aren’t as dramatic, but they still showcase how well some people have aged. George Clooney, Ellen, and Oprah are just a few folks that look better with time. (May we all be so lucky!)
