Photographer Tracks Down People He Snapped In His Hometown 40 Years Ago To Recreate The Photos

November 14, 2016

What a difference 40 years makes.

In the late 1970s and early 80s, Chris Porsz took hundreds of candid photos of people in his hometown of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Chris has spent the last few years tracking down the people he photographed. Some were easy, some were hard, some were impossible to find.

When he was successful, Chris arranged a reunion at the location of the original photograph and took another picture. His hard work paid off and he has now published his photos in a new book, "Reunions."
