L@@KING into Mirrors ><

"I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit & I crash my mirrors, now the whole world is here for me to see."

Photographer Tom Hussey created a series of pictures that will speak

 to you, no matter your age, race, beliefs or occupation. The photos

 illustrate just how much we change in our lives and how it seems

 to happen all at once, no matter how many years actually go by.

 These will grip your soul.

Reflection gives insight into the former lives of these senior citizens.



Tom spoke to a veteran right before his 80th birthday.

 His quotes inspired him to create the series.



“I can’t believe I’m going to be 80,” he told Hussey.

 “I feel like I just came back from   the war. I look in the mirror

 and I see this old guy.



“It’s a universal condition — at some point in your life,

 you look in the mirror and say, ‘Wait a minute, how did I get this old?’”

said Tom.



“The idea for doing these images was a person looking in the mirror

 and seeing what they remember.





“When you look in the mirror every day, you recognize yourself,

but when you go back and look at a photo of yourself years ago,

 you say, ‘Wow, I really have changed.’







“You get to some milestone — age 20, 40, or 80 —

 and you can’t believe that much time has gone by.”




Take time to appreciate every day, because these years will be gone

 before you know it.



Don't regret growing older.  It's a privilege denied to many.”
