We sometimes forget that our parents had lives before they raised us. Like us, they played in the schoolyard, maybe had music lessons, went trick-or-treating, and other things kids and teens generally do.
But have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be there, in that time. And would you have been great friends with them if you were the same age and grew up together?
Danielle Delph, an Art Director in Portland, Oregon did something incredible and scanned and Photoshopped herself onto some of her mother’s childhood photos. She selected heartwarming pictures where she and her mother were the same age and created a series of images where she appears next to her mother. It helps paint a picture of what it would have been like if both of them were there at the same time and how they would have interacted with each other.
