Tom Hussey is an award-winning lifestyle advertising photographer based in Dallas, Texas. In a series entitled Reflections, Hussey shows a series of elderly people looking in a mirror at their younger self.
The photographs show an elderly person looking pensively at the reflection of his/her younger self in the mirror. Hussey was inspired by a World War II veteran who said “I can’t believe I’m going to be 80. I feel like I just came back from the war. I look in the mirror and I see this old guy.”
Each passing year of our lives helps us understand the significance of this photo series. We reflect upon our past enjoying the accomplishments that still make us smile today. Hussey helps us recapture those moments in a creative and artistic way.
