These Portraits of Musicians Posing With Their Younger Selves Are Brilliant!

Ever wished you could travel back in time and meet your younger self?

Dutch artist Ard Gelinck has been working on an ongoing Then & Now project in which he uses Photoshop to create portraits of famous people posing with their younger selves. Among these stars are Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Elton John, Rob Lowe, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Phil Collins, and just to name a few.

His images are often quite convincing since he takes the time to find very good source photos where it appears to be credible that they are posing with each other. He then takes time to carefully match the colors and tones creating the illusion of a portrait actually taken together.

In some cases, decades have passed since the original photos, the comparisons are something really special. Take a look at the images below!
